Crunchy granola puts a new spin on banana muffins. They’re soft and fluffy on the inside and have an added healthy benefit thanks to the addition of your favorite granola. Banana granola muffins are soft and fully on the inside with an added crunch on the top.

 

Over the past two weeks, I’ve made these muffins three times. The reason why? They are just that stinking good! The rational for making them in the first place was because I wanted something on the healthy side for my son to eat for breakfast. School had just started back and I knew he’d be on the go, so coming up with “portable food” was a necessity. I got all my ingredients together, whipped up a batch of these babies in no time and waited for my taste tester to arrive. I’m not really sure what happened after that except I got a nod, an “oh yeah” and then the muffins were gone.Banana granola muffins are soft and fully on the inside with an added crunch on the top.

Per request, I made a batch a second time. This go around, I made sure my yummy muffins made through more than one day! These Banana Granola Muffins are a great, grab and go breakfast. They are full of banana flavor with surprising texture from the granola. I made things easy on myself by using my favorite store bought granola and was thrilled at the outcome.

I ended up making a third batch of muffins over the weekend for the whole family to enjoy and I can tell you right now, they are the perfect accompaniment to a hot cup of coffee in the morning. We also enjoyed them as an afternoon snack and I’ve even packed them up to have while running errands on a busy afternoon.
