Zayne's Banana Muffins

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Rebecca_E

Wholesome, Healthy and satisfying banana muffins. I made a few changes to make them special for my kids. My son asks me to make them all the time. He would eat the whole batch if I let him. They are great to throw in your bag or take on a roadtrip. I'm stuck on my recipe because it doesn't use baking powder, which tends to give banana muffins a bitter aftertaste.

These were excellent muffins. I used the 1/2 c. sugar recipe and added the applesauce (3T.) as suggested. Plenty of sweetness if you are using ripe bananas. Also put in my chopped walnut, 1/4-1/2c. based on preference. I also gave a light glaze of maple butter right after baking. I don't use whole wheat flour often but think it added to the wonderful texture.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter and mix in sugar and mashed up bananas.
  2. Add eggs and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl mix flour, salt, soda, and cinnamon together with a fork.
  4. Pour into banana mixture.
  5. Stir it up and throw it into a muffin tin (or a bundt cake pan, or a bread pan)
  6. I let my son put some confetti sprinkles on top before we put them into the oven. Sometimes when I have some homemade applesauce in the fridge I'll put a couple tablespoons into the batter. The muffin comes out a little more moist and dense.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees until a knife or cake tester comes out clean.
  8. The muffins usually only take 15 mins and the bread and bundt pan take 35-40 minutes.
  9. Enjoy!
