What’s better than a banana muffin? A mini banana muffin!! At least according to my kids. 🙂

Here’s quick and simple banana muffin recipe that you can whip together in a few minutes. Feel free to make them your own by adding nuts, seeds or chocolate chips. I made 1/2 of the muffins plain and added chocolate chips to the other half.


1/2 cup soft unsalted butter

1 cup sugar

3 ripe bananas

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups unbleached white flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup milk


Preheat oven to 350 °F

Grease 2 x 24 hole mini muffin tins

Beat butter and sugar until nice and fluffy (a couple of minutes).

For the recipe I defrosted 3 ripes bananas that I had in the freezer. They look a bit slimy, but they are actually super sweet!


Add the bananas, eggs and vanilla. Mix until smooth.Mini Banana Muffins

Finally, add all of the dry ingredients and the milk. Using a wooden spoon mix until incorporate. You don’t want to over mix.


Divide the mixture into the two trays and bake for 15-20 mins. As I mentioned, I added chocolate chips to 1/2 of the muffins.
