Banana Muffins

Banana Muffins

Introduction

My family just *won't* eat bananas with spots on them at all.....so I came up with this quick recipe one morning and took them to work with me. My co-workers devoured them before even getting back to their desks!

This recipe can easily be doubled -- I usually only have a couple of ripe bananas laying around at a time, though, and that's why I have these amounts listed.

Ingredients

  • I made this recipe following some suggestions, but decided to make some of my own experiments, like trying flax seed instead of oil. Not sure if that made a difference in the taste...maybe I will try again with apple sauce...not sure. Thanks for the ideas though! I am always willing to try! - 5/12/11

  • Hi All - i love this recipe but the first time I made it I didn't notice issue with baking powder and soda. Yes they were very dense but filling and good. This last time I made them i added 1 tbsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp baking soda. The muffins rose and were great. - 2/13/11

  • can someone confirm that is baking POWDER or SODA that is to be used? The recipe states both, once in the ingredients and once in the directions. - 2/1/09
