The Best Banana Muffins You’ll Ever Taste

Here’s a fun fact that not many people know about me: I love baking! But I don’t mean the “Betty Crocker, straight out the bag, just add water” type of baking. I love making things from scratch. One of my favorite family recipes is banana muffins. I promise the ones I make really are the best! In fact, the first time I made it for my roommate, she ate the whole batch and begged me to make more. So, if you love banana anything (or just have a sweet tooth, in general), you have to try these!


  • 3 large bananas (you want them to be super ripe!)
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 ½ cup flour


  • Pecans (I just eyeball these)
  • Chocolate Chips (a handful or two will do)



  • Preheat oven to 375
  • In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until they form a lumpy, liquid texture. Add sugar and beaten egg, mix. Next, add melted butter. Once that is well combined, add baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour. Mix well.
  • If you really want to take these muffins above and beyond, add chopped pecans and chocolate chips!

  • Spoon batter into greased or lined muffin pan and bake for 20 minutes.
