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 😀

My first cookbook is now out of print, however I just released my BRAND NEW BOOK, “Cat Can Cook Vegetarian” It features most of the original recipes in book #1, but this book is bigger and better and in full colour! It is a vegetarian cookbook that focuses on delicious, easy recipes!

You can order Cat Can Cook Vegetarian online!

    I have made these, so, so many times over the last few years. I now don’t use any sugar at all, instead I make my own apple puree, also without sugar, and use that as a sweetener. I also use 4 really ripe bananas per batch, self-raising flour instead of plain, baking powder etc, and about a cup of apple puree.

    Made these. very good. Used 1/2 brown sugar and white. Added applesauce with the bananas because my bananas were not super ripe. Thank you.

    I’ve made these muffins more times than I can count. Always a hit! However, I’ve never been able to get 12 muffins out of this recipe! I only fill the tins about 2/3, and my muffin tin isn’t particularly big either haha…I usually manage 11 but today was only 10. Maybe it has to do with me using frozen (then thawed) bananas?

    Still, they always turn out amazing so I can’t complain too much! 😉
