A small but mighty batch!

This recipe makes 12 large muffins. But if you want more, you can easily double the recipe and freeze half of the muffins for later.  I love having fresh muffins in the freezer, they’re a great all year round staple.

Recipe Tips:

  • Bananas: Make sure to use ripe bananas for all banana muffin recipes.
  • Milk:  You can use 1, 2 or 3% milk for this recipe. You can even substitute the milk with sour cream or yogurt.
  • Flavour Options:  Feel free to add 1/2 cup chocolate chips or 1/2 cup walnuts or 1/2 cup raisins or 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
  • Let them cool:  Let these muffins cool completely before eating them…if you try to eat them too soon they will stick to the paper muffin liners.
  • Freezing:  These muffins freeze really well. Just store them in an air-tight container or ziplock bag and freeze for up to 6 months.
  • Doubling: This recipe doubles beautifully.
