My simple banana bread muffins are the perfect way to use your bananas that have seen better days.
Updated May 2020
WOW! This post has gained so much traction lately, which is a huge surprise since it was one of my first posts ever published here on Twins and Coffee.
So I’ve decided to give it a bit of an update because it was a very poorly done post. But the recipe will stay the same, don’t worry. I’ve seen you all sharing it all across Pinterest and sharing your recreations. I am loving it! It’s become a very popular simple banana bread muffin recipe on Pinterest.
It’s really strange to think back to when I first published this post. I knew nothing about this whole blogging thing and was just dipping my toes in while struggling with my mental health postpartum.
I used Twins and Coffee as an outlet back then to connect with other twin moms struggling with the same things I was, and since then it has evolved into a huge platform for encouraging new moms to embrace the season and value their worth.
I’ll leave it at that though. You’re probably not here to learn the life story of Twins and Coffee. Just looking for a bomb ass simple banana bread muffins recipe.
And for that, I can deliver.
These simple banana bread muffins are my family go to any time we have some bananas that have sat on the counter for too long.
I’ve made them time and time again since I first published this post in 2017.
They’re moist, packed with flavor, and include a little secret ingredient. Nutmeg!
I really think the ground nutmeg is what ties all of the ingredients together and makes for such a rich banana bread muffin.
The following recipe is all you need to impress your family with your culinary skills, but if you’re looking to go the extra mile, try some add-ins like a 1/4 cup of sour cream for even more richness, chocolate chips for the sweet tooth, or coconut shreds for “not your mamas banana bread”.
But I’ll leave you to it from here.
Let’s dive in!
- 3 medium bananas (the more ripe, the better!)
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1 1/2 cup flour
