Banana Muffins Ingredients
Bananas – We had these 2 ripe bananas sitting around- perfect for this recipe!
How to make Banana Bread Muffins
In separate bowls, sift and whisk together your dry ingredients and beat together your wet ingredients. Stir the wet and dry ingredients together until just combined.
Evenly fill your muffin cups with batter before baking at 375 degrees until a toothpick pulls clean.
Top your muffins by dipping them in butter then cinnamon-sugar.
Our muffins will come out best if we prep our wet and dry ingredients separately. For the dry, first sift together your flour, baking soda, and salt. Do this 2-3 times to introduce plenty of air. Once sifted, add your cinnamon whisk to combine.
Now the wet stuff. First, peel your bananas and mash them with a fork.
Once mashed, we can add in our remaining wet muffin ingredients. That’s the egg, sugars, vanilla, and oil. Beat together until fully mixed.
Now we can mix everything together. Add your wet ingredients to the dry and start mixing. We don’t want to overmix- stir until the two are just combined.
With our batter mixed up, we can finally get to baking! Grease your favorite muffin pan and then start evenly adding your batter to the individual cups. Once the cups are filled, send them into a 375 degree oven and let bake for about 20 minutes. They’re done when a toothpick, poked into the center, pulls clean.
Topping your muffins
These muffins would be good enough on their own but we’ll add a cinnamon-sugar topping for a bit more flavor! For the topping, you need to prep 2 small bowls: in one, some melted butter and, in the other, some sugar and cinnamon you’ve whisked together.
To get a nice topping of cinnamon-sugar onto your muffins, first, dip the muffin tops in the melted butter…
…then give them a quick dip into the cinnamon-sugar mix.
Once your topping is on there, your muffins are good to go. Grab one, take a bite, and enjoy!
How long are Banana Bread Muffins good for?
No matter where you store them, we recommend keeping your leftover muffins in some sort of airtight container or Ziploc bag. Kept at room temperature, they’ll stay fresh about 3-4 days. In the fridge, they’re good for about a week. For long-term storage, keep them in the freezer- they’ll last about 3 months. To reheat let thaw in the fridge before reheating in the microwave or oven.
