If you’re adding a topping, the NuttZo Seven Nut & Seed Butter is flavor perfection. The creaminess and the crunch of the nuts and seeds go wonderfully with the texture and flavor of the muffins.

  1. I’ve made a lot of similar recipes using banana and nuts, just not with oat bran. I absolutely love the combination of banana and nut. I would like to make protein squares from scratch.

  2. I have a friend who cannot eat gluten who would really love this recipe. I’m going to share it with her and ask her to make some of these muffins for me too.

  3. So many yummy looking ways to start the day. I love the portability of muffins and I love banana! I’m going to have to try this recipe.

  4. These look AWESOME! I love anything with banana in it, but my kids tend to eat bananas so fast we never have ripe enough ones to make anything. Once in a while I will get a few. We are oatmeal people, my kids eat it every day. Sometimes muesli, but most often oatmeal with milk and bananas and walnuts. I definitely want to try these muffins though, I love muffins.

  5. If I have all the ingredients, I am going to make these right here, right now for breakfast! Thanks for sharing Jill!

  6. So hungry! Thanks for sharing I will definitely be trying out this recipe!

  7. These look so DELISH and of course I love the Nuttzo topping…I’m definitely going to post these on the Nuttzo site, so keep an eye out for it! XOXO

  9. What a great link up. The banana walnut muffins look so delicious! I can’t wait to try your recipe.

  10. what a delicious recipe! I love healthy breakfasts alternatives and these would be great on the go too!

  11. I love that the muffins don’t compromise on taste but still manages to deliver a delicious desert yum! I like the combination of banana and walnut too!

  12. Love how there’s no funky ingredients or flours that I’ll never use again in these. I usually skip over those recipes no matter how tasty they look since I won’t bother to buy all those ingredients. Lucky for me, these ones will be made! Can’t say I may not add some chocolate chips though 😉

    1. Emily I thought about chocolate chips after the fact. Imagine the yumminess of a warm muffin with banana and chocolate 🙂
