Recipe: Banana Muffins

Banana muffins

We like banana muffins in this house (I meant to take a picture of the whole pile, but we started eating them instead!). This recipe makes a dense, not-too-sweet muffin that’s full of banana flavour. Optional add-ins are cinnamon or chocolate chips.


  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour


Preheat oven to 350F.

Mash bananas in a mixing bowl. Add butter; stir until combined. Add sugar, egg, and vanilla and mix well.

Sprinkle baking soda and salt over batter and mix in. Add the flour and stir until combined.

Pour into greased muffin tins — this recipe usually nets me about 16 muffins.  Bake 20-25 minutes, until done.
