  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

  5. In a separate large mixing bowl cream together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy.
  6. Add in the mashed bananas, eggs, milk, and vanilla. Mix well.
  7. Then add the flour mixture and blend until just moistened.
  8. Scoop the muffin batter evenly between the 12 prepared muffin cups.
