  • ½ cup wheat flour
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup bran flakes or Raisin Bran
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 medium very ripe bananas, well-mashed (~ 1 cup mashed bananas)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt or buttermilk
  • ½- 2/3 cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup or ½ stick unsalted butter or pureed ripe avocado, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup walnuts chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Put cupcake liners in muffin pans. Spray the liners lightly with cooking spray, optional.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix the wheat flour, all-purpose flour, bran flakes, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate large bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas, eggs, yogurt, maple syrup, butter, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir. Do not overmix. Make sure that the bran flakes are completely coated with wet ingredients and no lumps of flour remain.
  • Fold in walnuts until just combined.
  • Fill each cupcake liner ⅔ of the way full with batter.
  • Bake for 19 or 20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.


You can leave the bran flakes whole or crushed. They will dissolve during the baking process unless they are in a pocket of flour. Make sure they are well incorporated into the wet ingredients to prevent this from happening.
