  • 150 g (1 and ¼ cup) whole wheat flour
  • 100 g (1 cup and 2 teaspoons) rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 and ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • teaspoon cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 2 large bananas (250 grams peeled/1 cup mashed banana)
  • 80 g (⅓ cup) olive oil
  • 70 g (⅓ cup) light brown sugar or maple syrup *
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large carrots (215-230 grams/ 2 cups grated carrots)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F(177°C). Line 12 non-stick standard paper liners into regular size 12 cup-cupcake/muffin pan and set aside.
  • Place whole wheat flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda and salt if using in a large bowl and stir. Set aside.
  • Peel and grate the carrots. Set aside.
  • Mash the bananas with a fork.
  • Stir in the olive oil and sugar.
  • Mix in the egg and stir in the vanilla.
  • Add the wet ingredient mixture into dry ingredient mixture. Stir until combined.
  • Add the grated carrots and stir with a spoon until combined.
  • Divide the batter into a 12 cup muffin pan.
  • Bake for 24-28 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Keep the muffins in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring on a wire rack to completely cool.


*I use a little amount of sugar as I use ripe bananas.  If the bananas you are using aren't ripe, you may need to use more sweetener. You can use ⅓ cup (85 ml/110g) maple syrup instead of light brown sugar. 
How to Store: You can keep totally cooled muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days and up to a week in the fridge.  You can freeze them in an airtight container for up to 2 months.
