Banana Okara Muffins

These muffins are so moist & tasty. The smell of them cooking in the oven is so divine!

You'll need:
1 cup of wet okara
3/4 cup soymilk
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup agave nectar

Mix all of these ingredients in a bowl & combine well.

Mash 2 over-ripe bananas.
Add them to the moist mixture.

Add 1 cup wholemeal flour, 3/4 cup white flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder & 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Stir until well combined but do not overmix.

Lightly spray a 12 cup muffin pan. Sprinkle dried banana chips over the top.
Pour mixture into muffin pan & bake at 180C for 25 mins (or until lightly golden).

NB:  I recommend adding the plain flour 1/4 cup at a time. You may only need 1/2 cup depending on how moist your okara is. I have found that 3/4 cup works well for the okara that comes from my soymilk maker machine.

Perfect match = Chocolate soymilk!


  1. I made these and the flavour was good but they were so wet and wouldn't cook through the middle. I'm not sure what I did wrong. Maybe my okara was much too wet?

    1. So sorry that they didn't work out for you. Yes I guess Okara can vary in it's moisture level quite a bit. You could omit the oil, or reduce the soymilk to help.

  2. What works really well with okara baking is adding 1/8 c. per 1 cup of okara of Corn Flour. Don't add too much as it changes the flavor, but it is excellent for absorbing the excess moisture.

    1. Thanks for sharing that tip - I'll have to give that a try. Now to work out what recipe I don't want as moist hehehe!!!
