Easy Banana Muffin Recipe

Ingredients (Makes 12 Muffins)
Time: 35 minutes

  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 cups whole wheat flour(see substitutes)

  • 3/4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (optional)

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 4 ripe bananas, mashed

  • 3/4 cup white sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/3 cup canola oil (butter, applesauce, or pumpkin puree)

  • Directions

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line or lightly spray muffin cups, including top, with cooking spray.

    In a large bowl, mix together flours, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

    In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to combine bananas, sugar, egg, vanilla, and oil. Add banana mixture to the flour mixture. Using as few strokes as possible, mix until everything is moistened (lumps are okay). Spoon banana muffin batter into prepared muffin cups, 2/3 full.

    Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Serve warm.

    Follow these directions then use our how to section to make an easy banana muffin recipe JUST FOR YOU!

    Add 1/2 cup walnuts (or more to your liking) for some extra crunch.

    There are many types of whole wheat flours that are sweeter and lighter than traditional whole wheat. For example, hard white wheat flour creates similar results as all white but is much better for you. There are other choices, too, like kamut flour, spelt flour, oat flour, and teff flour. These are all healthy choices. So ENJOY!
