Sweet Banana Muffins

Updated on October 10, 2012
5 stars from 2 ratings of Sweet Banana Muffins

Cook Time

Prep time: 45 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 1 hour 10 min
Yields: 12 Muffins

These banana muffins are more like cupcakes. They are soft, sweet and have a nice tacky top. Not dry in the slightest and perfect for a breakfast, snack or dessert.

Going over my hubs I've realized how delicious bananas are! I've already wrote about banana cheesecake, banana bread and banana pancakes! They are so yummy that I'm sure I'll come up with more ^_^


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional


  1. Let eggs sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. While the eggs are sitting grease and lightly flour a standard size 12 cavity muffin pan or line with paper baking cups. Personally I use baking spray. It's like normal non-stick spray only it has a little flour in it as well.
  3. Preheat your oven to 350'F.
  4. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  5. To the flour mixture add the banana, milk, butter and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on low until combined.
  6. Add the eggs and beat on medium speed for 2-3 minutes.
  7. Divide batter evenly between muffin cups. Each cup should be 2/3-3/4 full.
  8. Bake in preheated 350'F oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  9. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack after 5-10 minutes. Eat warm, cool or cold any time of day ^_^

      Thank you for stopping by and the nice comment Peony! As long as you wait for the bananas to go mostly black they have plenty of flavor, no need for extract or flavorings ^_^

      I love this! We have a banana cake here which is similar, but there's a lot of banana flavoring/essence that I dislike ): this would be a perfect recipe for me to try! Upped and very useful indeed (:
