The Easiest and Best Banana Muffins Recipe EVER! These are simple to whip up and perfect for a weekend breakfast. Loaded with banana and topped with crumb topping, I can’t get enough of this easy muffin recipe!
I feel like I definitely don’t give muffins enough play around here, and I don’t know why! I mean, who doesn’t love a muffin? I do have a few pretty choice muffin recipes here, ranging from Gooey Cinnamon Muffins all the way to the savory side with Pizza Muffins. BUT I have never posted a classic Banana Muffin recipe! Today we remedy that situation.
I used my Chocolate Chip Banana Bread recipe and morphed them into muffins with a few necessary tweaks. It was easy, and you should make them.
These Banana Muffins are super easy to make, loaded with bananas and sprinkled with buttery crumb topping! I love these so much because they always turn out perfectly. They’re perfect to make over the weekend, and then you can grab them for a quick breakfast throughout the week!
How Do You Make Banana Muffins?
This Banana Muffin recipe is so easy! No mixer is needed, just a few very ripe bananas! Like I said, I adapted my Chocolate Chip Banana Bread recipe for this recipe, because it’s the ABSOLUTE best! I tweaked it just little bit, because that recipe uses thinly sliced bananas to add extra moisture, but the banana slices don’t work as well in muffins. So found that if you mash them, but leave them fairly lumpy it works great! But I really like making banana bread AND these banana muffins with butter instead of oil because I find it adds more flavor!
Do You Have To Add Nuts To These Muffins?
I know adding nuts to baked goods is a personal preference, so I included the option for walnuts in the recipe card below, but you can certainly omit the nuts from this recipe as well! You can even add chocolate chips into the muffins if you like chocolate!
What Else Could You Add To These Muffins?
Banana Pairs well with so many things in baked goods! Here is a list of some fun add-in ideas!
- Chocolate Chips
- Mini Peanut Butter Cups
- White Chocolate Chips
- Pumpkin Spice
Can You Freeze These Banana Muffins?
YES! These Banana Muffins freeze perfectly! After they’ve cooled completely, you can just place them in a zip-top bag and freeze them for up to a month!
