Banana Walnut Muffins


 1 cup white beans, drained and rinsed

 2 over-ripe medium bananas

 2 eggs

 1/3 cup brown sugar

 1/4 cup Greek yogurt (regular yogurt works fine, too)

 1/8 cup olive or canola oil

 1 teaspoon vanilla

 2 cups whole wheat flour

 2 teaspoons baking powder

 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

 1½ teaspoons cinnamon

 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped


Preheat oven to 350° F.

In a food processor, add beans and 1-2 tablespoons water and puree. Then add bananas, eggs, brown sugar, yogurt, oil and vanilla. Puree until smooth.

In a large bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and ginger. Stir to evenly combine. Combine the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until integrated into a thicker batter. Don’t over-mix.

Fold in walnuts.

Spoon batter into oiled muffin cups and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until done.
