Baked: Banana Muffins

My mom scribbled down this recipe from a friend's book and made these regularly when I was a kid. When I got to university, I made them so often that I eventually memorized the recipe. I made a lot of friends with these muffins. They are super moist and fluffy and make a wonderful breakfast. I zap the leftover muffins in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds each to make them taste just as good as freshly baked.

Depending on my mood, I may or may not add chocolate chips - fantastic either way. This time, I did half a batch of each. :)


  • 3 large bananas - the riper, the better
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup melted butter or vegetable oil
  • chocolate chips, chopped walnuts (optional)
  1. Mash the bananas.
  2. Add the sugar & egg, mix.
  3. Add the melted butter/oil, mix.
  4. Add the dry ingredients, mix.
  5. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes.
