Bananas. Do you love them? I do. I’m in this routine where I eat 2-3 bananas, a day. It’s my snack and it makes me so happy. I have to buy 2 bunches a week at the store to keep up with my banana love.
Brown bananas though kind of freak me out. Here are the best ways to store bananas if you want to prevent that! I can handle a little brown here or there, but when they go very brown and mushy, I can’t eat them with a spoon like some people do. So what to do? You can make a banana smoothie, that sounds good. Or you can make banana soft serve ice cream, also really good. Or you can make these Mini and Moist Banana Muffin recipe!
The Best Banana Muffin Recipe!
These mini muffins are extremely moist. I was blown away by how soft they were inside. They have a banana taste to them, but it’s not overwhelming, although it’s still there. My husband who doesn’t like bananas at all kept saying “I don’t like bananas, but these are really good”. See, they win non banana lovers over too!
I baked these and took them to a house warming party and they were all gone within an hour! They were a big hit!
Let’s get baking and get started with this banana muffin recipe!
Take your mushy bananas, you probably won’t even need to mash them if they’re super soft. Mine were.
For this recipe you only need half an egg, so I break it apart with my fingers.
Add your other ingredients to the bananas..
Mix bananas, sugar, butter, and egg until smooth.
Then add your flour mixture.
And keep stirring until it’s all combined.
Spray your mini muffin pan with some nonstick spray.
Now we want to start to build the crumble. This crumble isn’t your typical crumble as it “melts” onto your muffin for a full impact of taste! Combine flour, cinnamon and brown sugar.
Then add your butter and combine it all.
Sprinkle a little bit of the crumble mixture onto each mini muffin.
Can’t you wait? I can’t!
How long does it take to bake mini banana muffins?
Bake for 10-13 minutes. Mine took 11, keep a eye on them. When their sides are brown (you can see on the edges of each muffin in the pan) they’re good to go.
And when they come out, holy moly. The smell of banana and cinnamon will take over. I can’t wait for you to taste them!
Let them cool for a few minutes, they will be easy to take out of the muffin pan when cool.
Admire then for a minute… and then eat them all!
