Banana Bread Muffin Recipe


We are settling in…into the house, into life as parents of two, into food coma from all the delicious dishes our friends have dropped off. Life is good.

And do you know what else is good? These banana bread muffins. You see we had some bananas and they were turning brown. I didn’t want the to go to waste. Usually I would throw them in smoothies or yogurt popsicles, but this particular day I was feeling banana bread for breakfast. Perfect with a cup of hot tea. Equally as lovely as an afternoon snack, enjoyed by both me and Chickadee. 

This recipe is awesome because you don’t need a mixer…just a few ingredients, a bowl, and a fork. Check it out.

  • I have made this Banana Bread and it was great except it was kind of heavy. You know
    the bottom is not cooked, it looks like you could ball it up. It was cooked. I don’t know what to do, because I want to make it again and add Chocolate Chips. That’s really good. Can you answer my question?
    Thanks Carol

    • I’m not sure why your muffins didn’t cook all the way through? You could try cooking them in the oven a little longer? It would be delicious with chocolate chips!
