Banana Bread Muffins

Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 24


  • 2 ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans optional


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease or line a mini muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas until smooth.
  3. Add the granulated sugar to the mashed bananas and mix well. Let this mixture sit for about 5 minutes. This allows the sugar to dissolve a bit, and it will make your muffins extra moist.
  4. Stir in the melted unsalted butter, egg, and vanilla extract into the banana-sugar mixture until well combined.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg.
  6. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Do not overmix; it's okay if there are a few lumps.
  7. Pour in the milk and mix until the batter is smooth. If you're adding chopped nuts, fold them into the batter at this stage.
  8. Using a tablespoon or a mini ice cream scoop, fill each mini muffin cup about two-thirds full with the banana bread batter.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Keep a close eye on them to avoid overbaking, as mini muffins cook faster than regular-sized muffins.
  10. Once done, remove the muffins from the oven and allow them to cool in the tin for a few minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
