– – – – – –

Yes, there are a million different recipes for banana muffins.  In fact I have a couple here on my blog already, but this recipe is by far the easiest and most delicious of them all.  How is it different you ask?  I guess I like this recipe because it has less sugar than the one I’ve been using for years, and it also has baking powder which I swear makes a difference in the bigger size of the muffins.  Plus this recipe can all be mixed by hand using only 2 bowls if you wanted.  I used a mixer out of habit, but you really could just mix the ingredients by hand, making this recipe so easy.  It’s a great one for kids to try out on their own!

    I have made this recipe at least 10 times and it comes out perfect every time! I make these and put them in a large zip lock bag for our busy family to be able to grab on the way out the door for breakfast. My teenage daughter and husband love them. I made some for my brother-in-law who LOVES banana bread and he actually ate them for his dinner one night because he “could not wait until breakfast”. Thanks for sharing this quick, inexpensive and delicious recipe.
