Best Banana Muffins ever!

I had a couple overripe bananas and decided to make banana muffins. I looked up several recipes online but ended up changing things up and making my own version. I am so glad I did. They came out amazingly moist and not too sweet. Check out the recipe below. Chances are you should have most of the ingredients in your kitchen already.


Banana Muffins
What you need:
6 tablespoons of butter, softened
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 brown sugar
2 very large or 3-4 small very ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg (optional) 
1/2 tsp fine, Kosher or sea salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 all purpose flour

How to make them:
Blend together butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Add bananas and then mix in the remaining dry ingredients. Fill muffin cups.  I used the foil baking cups that don't require any special pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool and enjoy! This recipe makes a dozen muffins. You could also add nuts or even ice with a cream cheese frosting or add a powdered sugar glaze. 

Let me know if you try this recipe!

  3. Thanks ma'am! I always have bananas that are ready to head out to pasture. I normally throw them in the freezer for smoothies, but sometimes I like to experiment with banana bread type recipes. Hubby will love these.
