Banana Granola Muffins

I've launched a little food-related project in conjunction with the folks at Fooducopia, a site where small food producers sell their products. My part in this is that I'll be creating recipes specifically for products sold on the Fooducopia site. This is one of those recipes.

This time, the product I used was Bulumu Orange Ginger Cranberry Granola

Sure, you can just open the bag and eat your granola, but why not take advantage of the flavors for baked goods? If you like the flavor of the granola, why not use it to flavor your muffins?

These muffins don't have a lot of sugar, but the bananas and the granola itself add extra sweetness. Even so, they're not overly sweet. Perfect for breakfast or brunch.

Banana Granola Muffins

2 cups (9 ounces) all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granola (plus more for topping)
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray 12 muffin cups with baking spray.

Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and granola in a medium bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, milk, egg, bananas, sugar, and vegetable oil. Whisk to combine.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and fold to combine - do not overmix.

Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tins. Top with additional granola. Bake at 375 degrees until browned, about 20 minutes.

Remove the muffins from the tins and let them cool on a rack.

To be clear, I'm not reviewing or endorsing the products in this recipe. I've created the recipe for Fooducopia to post its site and I'm re-posting the recipe here for my readers as well. Then again, since I created the recipe, rest assured that I liked it. I don't cook stuff that we're not going to eat.

I'm always on the lookout for breakfast muffin recipes and this sounds like a great one since I'm a great lover of all things granola too. The fact that it is not overly sweet is definitely a winner for me :)

Thanks for posting this recipe - I too was on the lookout for a not-too-sweet banana muffin recipe. My only modification was using brown sugar, and adding a tablespoon of cocoa powder (just because). Again, thanks for sharing.
