Quick Banana Muffins

Bake these for an afternoon coffee break treat.
 It will only take you 5 minutes to mix these up!
You'll need 3 over-ripe bananas.
 Mash with a mixer.
 Mix in sugar and a little cinnamon.
 Melt 5T (1/3C) butter.
  Mix in the melted butter and egg until combined. 
  I used self-rising flour, but you can use
regular flour and just add 1t baking soda
and a pinch of salt.
Lightly stir in the flour just until combined.
 Scoop into well greased muffin pan.
I scooped out 6 muffins and then added
1/4 C chopped pecans to the remaining batter
 for the last 6 muffins.
 Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes until golden.
Now pour your coffee and enjoy a warm banana muffin
 and a little butter.

  1. Just to let you know I love your recipes. I made the chess squares Sunday and they were a big hit. Everyone wanted the recipe.

  2. I was looking for a banana muffin recipe that didn't require baking powder baking soda (it usually gets wasted because I don't bake much). I added craisins, sprinkle sugar on top before baking and increased butter to half cup.

  3. Wow its 2020 and I just made these muffins! Thank u for sharing it! My family devoured them! They are now our favorite quick muffin recipe! I also added a half cup of butter and a one cup sugar. Thanx again:)

  4. I made these yesterday. I had only 2 bananas so I also added an individual serving of applesauce with cinnamon and these muffins are the best I have ever made. Twelve beautiful muffins that I would proudly serve to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Thanks, Rita for this recipe.
