Banana Muffins

Banana Muffins

Go bananas over these delicious and easy banana muffins.  I usually get pretty ambitious when I buy bananas.  I buy a bunch of them and assume I will eat them all before they go bad.  Being in New York City this summer, my fruit took a beating in the heat, shown by all the bruises.  So instead of throwing them away I found a new calling for these guys, banana muffins!  The darker the banana the better your banana baked goods will turn out.

This is a super fast and easy recipe to make.  Who doesn’t like a banana muffin? (don’t trust those people).  Here’s an interesting fact I learned; bananas don’t grow on trees – they’re actually a giant herb.  So the next time you want to waste a banana, remember just like money, they don’t grow on trees.

Banana Muffins

  • 2 large bananas
  • 1 ½ cup of all purpose
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ of teaspoon apple pie spice (secret ingredient)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cups white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup of butter
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl beat your bananas on medium speed until smooth. Combine your sugar egg, and melted butter into the bowl with the banana.
  3. In a separate bowl combine your flower, baking powder and soda, and salt.
  4. Add your dry mixture into the banana mixture.
  5. Spray your cupcake with nonstick spray or line it with cupcake paper. Spoon into a cup/ muffin pan.
  6. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until baked through (stick a toothpick in the middle of one and if it comes out clean it’s done!).
  7. Last but not least enjoy and spot the vicious cycle of throwing away your old bananas.
