Wet ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of canola oil
  • 5 tablespoons of honey (you can add 1 more for a little sweeter muffins)
  • 1 cup of water

Dry ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.
  • In a small bowl mix together chia seeds with half a cup of water and let it soak for 15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, in a large mixing bowl, add cut up bananas, vanilla, oil and honey and mix well using an electric mixer until there are no lumps.
  • After chia has swelled, add to mixing bowl and mix well. Add remaining cup of water and mix until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl using a whisk, mix together dry ingredients and add slowly to the wet ingredients, 1/3 at a time and mix well.
  • Line up your muffins pan with paper liners and spray them well with cooking spray. Scoop the batter covering 2/3 of each muffin cup.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • if you have more batter left, you can bake a second batch.


My bananas were not super ripe, so they were not as sweet as super ripe bananas can be. Therefore my muffins could have used a little bit more honey. So depending on your bananas, you may want to add extra tablespoon of honey. Also you can add half a teaspoon of maple syrup once the muffins are cooled.
