Banana Cinnamon Muffins

Adapted from Fanny Farmer recipe. I like the addition on cinnamon and vanilla, and sea salt provides better flavor then regular salt. Ground sea salt is available in most grocery and gourmet or health food stores

I am on a muffin kick and discovered these today. Really enjoyed them. They taste like a mini banana loaf of bread. Ended up using 2 bananas, and omited the salt (by accident) and vanilla. Upped the cinnamon to 2 tsp. Submitted a change to the cooking time, because mine were completely done before 20 min. There is no way 35-40 is correct. Thanks for sharing!

A very tasty recipe! My batch made 12 muffins, and I reduced the salt to 1/4 tsp. These were great! thanks for the recipe!

The whole family loved these muffins and I will definately be making more. I got 12 mini muffins and 9 regular muffins out of one batch. I sprinkled cinnamon sugar on the muffins before putting them in the oven. The mini muffins were done after 10 minutes, and the regular in 20 minutes.
