Awesome Banana Muffin Recipe

These are by far the EASIEST and BEST Banana Muffins I have ever tasted! Even if you think you can’t cook, they are 100% “fool-proof” which makes them all that much better! With only 8 ingredients (which you probably have on-hand) I am sure you’ll agree these are super easy. See for yourself in the feedback! There are over 1000 positive comments – if that’s not good feedback, I don’t know what is!

They are extremely easy, and great tasting! So versatile…change them up and let me know how they turned out! You just can’t go wrong with this GREAT RECIPE! If you like them, leave me a comment and tell me about your muffin victory! :-)

Banana Muffin

Banana Muffins (makes 12 muffins)

3 or 4 Large bananas, mashed (the more bananas the moister, so I use 4)

1/2 cup white sugar (original recipe calls for 1 cup, but I don’t like them too sweet)

1 slightly beaten egg

1/3 cup melted margarine or butter

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups flour

Mix the mashed banana, sugar, egg and margarine together. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour. Mix wet and dry ingredients all together! Pour into greased muffin tins, and bake in 350 degrees F oven for approximately 20 minutes. Enjoy!

*These are much more flavourful the next day, and they freeze very nicely too!

*Also, if you like walnuts, you can throw a handful of those in there as well for some added flavour and texture, or try adding chocolate chips, or better yet, BOTH! Yum 😀

    plain banana .

    How long can you let the banana muffins sit out?

    Oh boy! The muffins have just come out of the oven. They smell heavenly. They are golden and have risen (I hate when a muffin sinks!!) very well. Can’t wait to taste them!

    The recipe made 12 BIG muffins, I baked them exactly 20 minutes, and they came out perfect.

    I never leave reviews, but these muffins are AMAZING! I used 5 bananas, 3/4 cup of sugar and added a cup of peanut butter chips. YUM, my son said they are so good that I should sell them to a bakery :)

    Yum – Peanut Butter Chips! I often put P.B. on my Banana Muffin, but P.B. Chips? You’re onto something great here, Kris 😉

    I just made these and I have got to tell you, they are dellllicious! There are only two of us, so I cut the recipe in half. Moist, decadent, you name it! Over the holidays I will be making these for when all the children are home. They love my baked goods and I know this will be a winner. I added blueberries too. Wonderful. Never knew I could prepare a batch of muffins in under 5 minutes. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!

    Love these muffins… Have substituted gluten free flour and they still taste great… I also like to add 1 tsp of cinnamon and a couple handfuls of spinach puréed in blender. Great breakfast or lunch treat for kids

    WOW! Easiest & best ever! Perfect banana flavor (used 4) & oober moist! I had to do the crisco/water sub for butter but everything else to the T. For fun I also did some with an oatmeal crumble top (left over from apple pies) and others with a dollop of pb&j in the center (just cuz). Can’t wait to try more variations!! 5 stars all the way!
