The Best Ever Banana Muffin


  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (no more than 1 cup)
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda (dissolved in 2 tsp hot water)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Nutella (optional)


  1. Cream together margarine and sugar.
  2. Add eggs one at a time, then mashed bananas.
  3. Add baking soda/water mix and the vanilla, then combine.
  4. Mix flour and cinnamon in a separate bowl, then add to banana mix and combine.

Make the muffins, one of two ways:

  1. If you want a Nutella centre, fill your muffin cups about a 1/4 full, then add about a teaspoon of Nutella into the centre. Top off the muffin cup with more batter, to make the muffin cups about 1/2 full in total.
  2. Or if you just want regular banana muffins, fill the muffin cup about 3/4 full.
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
