Banana Muffins

banana muffinsI’ve gotten behind on sharing my recipes lately!  I meant to post this banana muffin recipe weeks ago and never did.  I’m through procrastinating: here it is! 🙂

I grew up with this recipe.  I always loved the mornings when I woke up to the smell of these muffins and got to eat them fresh from the oven.  I still love them now and also often make them with blueberries instead of bananas.

Blueberry Muffins

Yield: 12 muffins

1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt

1 beaten egg
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup oil

1 cup bananas


1. Stir together the first 4 ingredients.  Combine the next three ingredients in a different bowl, and then mix together just until moistened.  Add the bananas.

2. Fill 12 greased or paper-lined muffin cups to about 2/3 full.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until just lightly browned.

    I just made a banana cake but then my flour ruined it. 😦 Somehow didn’t realise the flour had gone rancid. I have to do a take 2 with your recipe.
