Banana Bran Muffins with Agave Walnuts, Peaches & Nutmeg

Banana Bran Muffins with Agave Walnuts, Peaches & Nutmeg
(12 Item Recipe)
Yields: 12 Muffins
Time: 20 Minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup organic peaches, cut into course pieces
2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 large organic egg, (vegetarian fed egg), beaten
1 1/4 Cups Soy milk
2 organic bananas, ripe and mashed
1/2 Cup organic agave
2 Cups organic whole wheat flour (I prefer bob’s red mill)
1 Cup organic wheat bran
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon organic nutmeg
1/2 Cup raw organic walnuts, chopped

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin. In a bowl, stir together wet ingredients combining oil, egg, soy milk, bananas and agave and peaches.  Set mixture aside.  In another bowl, whisk together dry ingredients mixing together whole wheat flour, wheat bran, baking powder, baking soda, and nutmeg.  Make sure mixture is mixed well.  Take the wet ingredients and put into the dry ingredients stirring until combined. Be sure not to over mix, but make sure the flour on the bottom of the bowl has been stirred. Gently fold in chopped walnuts.  Take the batter and spoon it into 12 greased muffin cups, filling the cups to the top.  Bake for 20 minutes. Muffins are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  I enjoy the muffin served with a little dab of vegan butter which is optional.

    Just wondering if anyone has figured out the calorie count per muffin?

    1. Hello Kim and thank you for visiting our site. If you make the recipe as listed making 12 muffins, you are looking at 140 calories per muffin.

      Here are a few Lower calorie muffin options for this recipe that we review in our eating smart class:

      Option #1)
      If you are on a diet or looking for a lower calorie muffin you can simply cut 1/2 the walnuts, 1/2 the banana, and 1/2 the peaches and you can reduce the calories down to 118 per muffin.

      Option #2)
      Cutting the calorie count simply by removing the banana and oil and substituting apple sauce reducing the calorie count to 115 calories.

      Option #3)
      You can also opt for mini muffins making 24 of these in which you could have 2 mini muffins for 115 calories for a whole one, Or 58 calories per mini muffin.

      Option #4)
      You can also simply fill the muffin tin 1/2 way to make 1/2 the calorie muffins in which you can have a smaller muffin weighing in at 70 calories for a smaller muffin.

      Option #5)
      The last option we also do and teach in our eating smart class is making muffin tops. This is a great option when you are looking to feel like you have more food. This is Where you fill the muffin tin 1/4 full and you can have 4 of these for only 110 calories.
