There are so many variations of banana muffin recipes, I even have a couple others here on my website…each a little different, some requiring 3 bananas (like this one), some requiring 4, one with bran, one with oats, sour cream and berries…all delicious like little bites of banana bread.

Banana Muffin Recipe Tips

  • BANANAS: Use 3 ripe / overripe bananas, medium-large in size (small bananas will result in dry muffins).
  • BUTTER: Use salted butter. Option: Sometimes I will use 1/4 cup butter and a 1/4 cup coconut oil and this combination makes the most delicious moist muffins.
  • FLOUR: You can use all-purpose or whole wheat flour (or a combination of both).
  • OPTIONAL ADD-INS: Feel free to add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (mini chocolate chips are my kids favourite) to make Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins. Or if you like nuts in your muffins add 1/2 cup chopped nuts such as walnuts or pecans.
  • PAN: Use a 12 cup muffin pan with paper muffin liners (I love parchment liners!).
  • STORAGE: Keep muffins at room temperature in an airtight container.
  • FREEZING: These muffins freeze well. Store in an airtight container or freezer bag and freeze for up to 6 months.
  • DOUBLING: This recipe doubles beautifully.
