Updated: Jul 13, 2019

Two easy banana muffin recipes that take no more than 15 minutes from start to finish. We have also given you a banana and walnut recipe as part of our healthy recipes. You can substitute bananas for apples for either recipe.

Apples are very good for you. Full of fiber and antioxidants they help with weight-loss, protect your heart and colon against disease. Although apples are low in Vitamin C bananas aren't and they are also one of the best sources of Vitamin B6 and other minor Vitamins from the B group.

Bananas contain antioxidants that protect against clogged arteries, heart disease and Alzheimer. Studies in Sweden showed that women who had 5 bananas week in their diet halved their chances of developing renal cancer due to the presence of pectins in the fruit.

For a healthier banana muffin recipe, use wholemeal flour instead of white flour.
