Is there a substitution for the simple mills banana muffin mix?
Rachael Devaux says
Unfortunately, not for this recipe 🙁
You could do 2 cups of any flower – I had whole wheat so that’s what I used!
Made this recipe today and it was pretty good! definitely might try adding in some dairy-free chocolate chips next time!
I make this once a week and love it! Thanks for such a great recipe.
Omitted the flax meal because I didn’t have any on hand and it was so good!!
Also, do you store this at room temperature or in the fridge?
This bread is absolutely delightful!!! Thanks for such a great recipe, Rachael!!!
Followed directions as written above. Took it out of oven after 30 + 20 min. My husband and young sons devoured it in about 2 days. So many nutrients and it’s delicious. Thanks Rachael.
I ran out of coconut oil, should we substitute equal parts butter?
A great way to jazz up the box mix!

100%, I think I need to make another batch this week! 🙂
So fantastic! This recipe is easy to make, nutritious, and delicious! I added a banana on top (as per the picture) and I ended up baking it in a shallower/wider baking dish because I didn’t have a loaf pan and it turned out well! I highly recommend this to anyone who is considering it.
Just made with the Simple Mills chocolate muffin and cake mix plus added walnuts on top. Delicious!!
We love this recipe in our house. Instead of the collagen peptides, I add a scoop of Truvani protein powered. Baking it in a muffin tin makes for a perfect snack because I know we’re all getting our fat + fiber + protein in!
I love this recipe and I feel better about giving it to my kids as a snack. I have made as described many times, and not sure if it’s just me, but it takes quite a bit longer (like 30 min longer) than recommended to cook through. I now cook it at 350 rather than 325, but still takes longer. For that reason, I struggle to get the desired texture. For a fun change, I sometimes swap the banana muffin mix for Simple Mills pumpkin bread/muffin mix, add some chocolate chips, and bake as muffins.
This was so delicious!! Highly recommend for a simple, quick fix for any banana bread cravings 🙂
Love this as a way to “dress up” the Simple Mills mix! It’s a favorite with everyone in my family from my parents to my 2 year old nephew and I feel good about serving something that’s both healthy and delicious.
Could I substituted the banana bread mix for a simple mills cake mix?

This has been my go-to recipe for a couple of years now, anytime I have a ripe banana on hand. We usually add some Hu chocolate gems and chopped walnuts to ours. It’s so good!
