  • 12Servings


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1 cup mashed banana (1 to 2 bananas)
  • 1 cup whole milk yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, or vegetable oil


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with baking liners. In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup sugar with 1 teaspoon cinnamon.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, remaining 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, walnuts and raisins.

In a small bowl, beat together the banana, yogurt and egg with a fork. Stir in the butter. Stir the wet ingredients into the flour mixture until just combined.

Fill the lined muffin cups with the batter. Sprinkle the reserved cinnamon-sugar mixture on top. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted into the centers comes out dry, about 20 minutes.
