This muffin recipe has subtle flavors of banana and honey. They're made with whole wheat flour, healthy oats, cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. A touch of oil and creamy Greek yogurt add moisture and walnuts add a delicious crunch. —Kate Stewart

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and coat a 6-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk whole wheat flour, rolled oats, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. In a smaller bowl, whisk Greek yogurt, eggs, honey, oil, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Gently combine with the flour mixture until moistened. Fold in chopped walnuts.
  4. Divide the batter among the muffin cups and bake muffins until they spring back when lightly touched and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with only moist crumbs attached, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  5. Let stand in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Is the cinnamon measurement missing from the ingredient list? Looks like there is a reference to it in step 2.
