The Best Banana Muffin Recipe

My kids LOVE bananas.  Usually when I have bananas in the house, they don’t last long.  But like everything else, there are times when they don’t get eaten and end up turning brown.  And heaven forbid there be a spot on the banana peel!  The other day I had 6 bananas that did not get eaten.  I didn’t want to throw them away so I made the best banana muffin recipe ever…from scratch!  Yep!  Me, queen of the box mix, made banana muffins from scratch.  Like, from flour and sugar and stuff!  Not only was it super easy, but these are by far the BEST banana muffin recipe I have ever made!

  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • Dash of vanilla
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place muffin liners in your muffin pan.
  2. Using a potato masher, mash the bananas thoroughly.
  3. Mix the bananas, the egg and melted butter together.
  4. Add the sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt to the wet mixture and mix well.
  5. Fold in the flour and mix until you can’t see the flour.

See how easy they are?!?  They are the best muffins ever.  Seriously…try them…I promise you will love them!  I doubled the recipe and made 2 dozen delicious banana muffins that my family can’t stop eating!
