Amazingly Wholesome 5 Ingredient Banana Bread Muffins

Let me know if you try it! Hey, just wanted to say the first time I made this bread it turned out perfect other than I had to bake it for about an extra 10 mins, which is no big deal. The second time I added the oats first in to my blender then the other ingredients and my blender was having trouble, I think it got too dense in the bottom once some moisture hit it. So next time I will follow the ingredients list from top to bottom and it will work better. Thanks so much for this amazing recipe!

Lastly, I had to bake it for another 25 ish minutes, but, again, it turned out amazing. Cannot wait to try your flourless pumpkin bread — it will also likely be another gift basket addition: Hi Maegan,I just came across this recipe,had to try it immediately,it was amazing,please post more of your delicious recipes,loved it. Hi Maegan I love this recipe.

This banana bread fits the bill perfectly! Your Mom is very lucky to have such a good daughter! Pretty good for only being 5 ingredients. It was a little bland even though I did use very ripe bananas.

Next time I may add pumpkin. Took twice the time to bake than the suggested time. Overall it was a good recipe with clean and easy ingredients. This is the best GF banana bread recipe and so moist and yummy! I added dark chocolate chips and walnuts. This is my new fave banana bread recipe.

The banana bread was awesome. I did sprinkle organic coconut sugar.. So delicious I almost ate the whole loaf myself. What can I substitute for maple syrup — I cannot use honey either.

Would Agave Nectar work? I hope it turns out great! I have made this recipe several times love it! Trying to make it again and only have one cup of oat. What can I sub for the other cup needed? You could try substituting the other cup of oats with cornmeal, flour, quinoa, buckwheat, millet, or even crushed cereal such as corn flakes or Rice Krispies.

I just made this and thanks so much for sharing! To be honest, I humbly admitted I did not follow the recipe to a T. I already have oat flour on hand store bought, organic so I gave the blending step a miss. All I used was a bowl and a fork. Mashed the bananas with a fork, add eggs and beat them together like I would to make an omelette, added 2T maple syrup and 2T date syrup only because I ran out of maple syrup and continue mixing with a fork.

I did top the bread with sliced banana and threw in some roasted cashew. This bread is so easy with so few healthy ingredients and tasty and I look forward to baking it again in near future and may play around with the add ins. Thanks for providing a base for an easy GF banana bread, something me and my son both of us GI can enjoy. There are several out there. I just came across this blog while searching for Banana Bread recipe, I was wanting to avoid sugar so was looking for healthy option.

I was intrigued by this 5 ingredients recipe so gave it a try.. Amazing results already baked it twice now. Thank you for this lovely recipe. I tried this recipe and it came out wonderful! Maybe try grinding them first before blending them with the rest of the ingredients to make the bread batter.

Let me know how it turns out. I have some bananas that need to be used up. However, I only have 2 bananas now. You need at least a cup of mashed banana. If not, you could add some applesauce, canned pumpkin, or apple to make up for it. It came out perfectly with 2 bananas! And it tastes delicious! One more easy gf baked good added to my repertoire! Used honey, did not have maple syrup.

Not too sweet, my husband loved it! This is definitely a winner! I added a half cup of no fat Greek yogurt and walnuts on top. Thank you for this. I will try the pumpkin bread next. I was so surprised by the result of this banana bread — it was delicious!!!

Really moist and dense, with lots of banana flavor and the perfect amount of sweetness. I made some substitutions to work with what I already had in the pantry: I traded 1 cup of steel cut oats for the 2 cups of rolled oats annotated steel cut uses more moisture, so this ended up being a pretty good measurement for replacement. Just be sure to blend it a bit longer to break down the oats.

Powder is much less potent, so while this may sound like a lot, it was actually perfect. Finally, I did half honey and half maple syrup as my maple syrup is a bit too dark and strong. Per serving, or a 1-inch slice 8 servings total: Of course…just stir them in. Several people have said they added them and that it turns out great. Has anyone tried adding Craisins? Not sure if they would be too tart. The thought of the sweet and tart flavor might be interesting.

Will probably try this tonight and let you know. Hi, this recipe sounds great, however, 3 banana sounds a bit confusing. Just make sure all the ingredients are blended into a smooth batter so you get that great banana bread texture. Thanks for a simple, fast and yummy recipe! I love being able to just put everything in the blender and pour it into the bread pan! I will be using variations of this recipe with all my overripe bananas from now on!!! This recipe looked so promising, but unfortunately, followed the recipe to a T and now just have a burnt on the outside, raw on the inside mess.

Any ideas on what went wrong? Oven temperatures can vary quite a bit. I would recommend baking it on the center rack or one rack above the center in your oven. Also, did you blend the batter until smooth. What can I use to substitute the Maple syrup? I am thinking raisins.

I would recommend honey as the best substitute for the maple syrup. And what about agave instead of maple syrup? I hope it turns out just as great for you. Used my smoothie machine for the oats then mixed everything together. Also used agave syrup for the maple syrup. Cooked my mini muffins at for 12 minutes and they turned out perfect. You can use baking powder in place of baking soda, you just need to triple the amount.

You can do this because there is actually baking soda in baking powder, but just a little bit. I made this yesterday. I also added some walnuts and blackberries which I think made it more moist so I added some extra oats whole. Took 45min to bake in my oven. I also popped a slice in the freezer just to check how it keeps will report back next week when a work colleague comes back from holiday. So great to hear! Back to report it freezes perfectly fine. It was even more moist but I guess that would be the blackberries I added.

Would never think its gluten free. I added cinnamon and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. This will probably be the one and only banana bread recipe I will use from now on! Just tried this, it was super easy to make and it was delicious!! Before putting it into the oven I sprinkled cinnamon sugar over the top! Hello, I just wanted to say how delicious this was. This is great treat to feed to babies! My daughter is 13 months and she loved it.

Def easy to make. I almost put brown sugar in it for more sweetness but I stuck to the recipe to keep it healthier. I did how ever add chopped nuts, flax seed, cinnamon and nutmeg. It came out very moist but not as sweet as I wouldve liked. I used black bananas too Not bad though. Its good warm w butter. Or is it better to go out and buy baking soda? Or just not as sweet? Yes, you can use all egg whites. I would suggest using 2 egg whites for each egg, so 4 egg whites total.

If you substitute baking powder for the baking soda, it might give off a bitter taste because you have to use so much of it, but it will work. If you leave out the maple syrup, I would suggest adding another ripe banana for both the flavor and moisture as the maple syrup contributes to the moisture of the bread. I made this for the first time last week and we all loved it! I love the clean ingredients. I did change it up a bit Still keeping it healthy.

It is just in my Cajun Blood that I do not follow recipes: I added vanilla, Cinammon, raisins, and walnuts. I also added 1 tablespoon of honey along with the maple syrup. Hello from Finland; please note that 3 mashed bananas will not make 13 grams!

That is like two teaspoons…. Oh my goodness, thanks so much for catching that. I have no idea what I was thinking with that number. Just updated the post. I made this with a few substitutions: It was not sweet like most banana breads because it only had honey and it was more like bread rather than the light cakey texture from using all purpose flour.

Yum these look delicious! Definitely know what you mean about a healthy start post-Christmas and these sound just perfect! I think the butter is a great idea since we need fat to be healthy especially developing babies! Breast milk is super high in cholesterol for that reason! Ok, I trust you when you say they are delicious. Needing more on-the-go breakfast options that are not croissants. Also, healthy things that are not cardboard. When it comes to recipes that use dates as substitution for added sugar, could I use prunes instead?

I never seem to remember to buy dates, but have a half bag of prunes in my fridge! I already commented but I just made these. These were as easy to make as a smoothie. They popped out of the pan with ease. And you were right, super tasty.

My only suggestion is that if you have a cheap blender like I do, opt for the food processor. Silly question, but do the bananas actually need to be brown? Hi Karen, I just made these muffins, and only had one really ripe banana too, so I had to use two just barely ripe ones as well. The muffins still turned out well, I think the only difference is that they would be sweeter with riper bananas.

Oh my, my mouth is watering at the thought of these!! Looking forward to seeing your healthy recipes in January. I love healthy recipes.. Looks delicious especially with the banana. Made these yesterday, Lindsey. Love you 5 ingredient dishes and make the chili one regularly.

These muffins were a hit and so quick and easy! My husband is my sous chef aka dishwasher and he appreciated the one bowl food processor to clean. Made these last night and they are exactly what I have been missing in my life!! Great protein snack with all natural sugar and they taste fantastic! My husband loved them too! It is one of the recipes are very tasty! I love this recipe one. By the way, thanks for the recipe. Super yummy and so easy to make! Made them this morning to detox a bit after a week of over indulgence back home!

Only did two things different than the recipe: My ten-month old son loves them, too — sans chocolate chips.
