Do you have some ripe bananas on hand? Instead of throwing them out, let's use them to make this easy muffin recipe! The banana walnut flavor combo is a classic and always will be a personal favorite of mine. These muffins didn't last more than a day when I made them for my family, and I know they'll be a hit in your home, too šŸ˜Š

These sweet and fluffy muffins make for a perfect snack, dessert, or on-the-go breakfast. Did I mention they feature simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry? It doesn't get easier than that. If you're reading to start baking šŸ‘©ā€šŸ³, grab your ingredients and keep scrolling for the recipe!

** Side note for anyone who struggles with eating “unhealthified” desserts (or desserts, period) **

I just wanted to share that a healthy, balanced diet includes foods that make you happy and nourish your soul! If your current relationship with food doesn't have room for your favorite eats and treats, it is all the more reason to whip up a batch of these muffins to work on accepting all foods back into your life! Because food is more than just fuel to move, and you deserve to enjoy all the yummy baked goods that make you happy (without a side of guilt) ā¤ļø

If you struggle with food guilt after eating, give this blog post a quick read, then come back to this easy muffin recipe and let's get to baking!


P.S. Are you hesitant to make these muffins (or any baked goods, for that matter) because, if you have one, you won't be able to stop until they're all gone? Because, for some reason, baked goods are your ‘can't-stop-once-I-start' food? Then I highly recommend listening to this podcast episode to learn how to change this!

P.P.S. Want to enjoy muffins for breakfast but find that they always leave you hungry in an hour? Try pairing a warmed muffin with some yogurt (see photo below) or crumbling one on top of oats for some extra satiety!
