Banana Muffins

I'm sure you all read that I eat bananas with a of my quirks.  Furthermore, I only eat them at a specific time of ripeness, which lasts only one to two days at the most.  Anytime after that, I offer them to my children.  When they get spots and no one wants them, that is when I put them to use in recipes.  One of my favorites (probably everyone's favorite) is banana muffins.  Try these with chocolate chips for an extra bit of sweetness!

If you are looking for another recipe to try aside from this one, I have a different recipe for banana bread but you could also use it for muffins.

Banana Muffins
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 or 2 bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, nuts, or peanut butter chips *optional

  1. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.  
  2. Add egg, banana, milk, and oil and mix. 
  3. Stir in the chips or nuts.
  4. Spoon into greased or lined muffin tins.
  5. Bake at 400 for 20 min or until lightly golden on top.


  1. Ah! love banana muffins! I had the perfect recipe but I lost it and all of the others I've tried come out a bit rubbery, I'll have to try yours and let you know.

    Great blog btw

  2. Thanks for stopping by. Oh, I hope you like the muffin recipe. I use a completely different recipe for banana bread. I will have to post that one soon. If you don't like this one, maybe you will like the other one. So yes, please keep me updated on your experience with this one.
