Simple Banana Bread Muffin Recipe
The best part about this banana bread, besides being muffins, is no sugar is used. So there is no need to feel guilty about eating this delicious treat. The banana bread muffins are sweetened simply with honey or maple syrup.
My family absolutely loves banana bread. Since I have small children, grab and go muffins are always a plus.
What's even better is these banana bread muffins can easily be made ahead of time and put into the freezer. When I wake up in the morning, I can set them out to thaw on the counter or heat them back up in the oven.
It makes for a very low maintenance morning. My favorite kind of morning!
Peel ripened bananas and place them in a bowl. Blend the bananas only until well mashed. You could do this with a mixer, but a fork or potato masher works great, too.
If you don't have ripened bananas, unripened bananas will work. Ripened bananas are definitely sweeter though!
Sometimes, I take my unripened bananas and throw them on a baking sheet for fifteen minutes in the oven at 275°F. It helps sweeten up the bananas.
No worries though! The honey or maple syrup will sweeten the banana bread muffins either way. :-) This is just a tip for an extra sweet tooth.
Add the flour in first, then the other ingredients. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
Add liners to your muffin tin or grease the muffin tin if you choose not to use liners. Then fill the cavities 3/4 of the way full with banana bread batter.
Bake the muffins at 350°F for 25-30 minutes.
