Easy Banana Bread Muffins

I love Banana bread and my little Cupcakes loves helping me make it! Β I’ve told you about our fun times making banana bread before. Β πŸ™‚ Β For some reason, though, I haven’t shared this recipe yet. Β I hope you love it!! Β These are ingredients I always just have in my kitchen, but sometimes I do have to wait for the bananas to ripen. Β I like that I can just make these whenever I feel like it and I love how easy they are. Β πŸ™‚

banana bread muffins


1 Stick of Butter (8 Tablespoons)
1 Cup of Sugar (or 1/2 Cup of Truvia baking blend)
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
2 Eggs
2 Very Ripe (brown) Bananas


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put cupcake liners into a 12-er muffin pan.
Cream butter and sugar (I popped my butter in the microwave for a few seconds).
Beat the two eggs and add them to the sugar/butter.
Mash the bananas in a bowl.
Combine bananas, flour, baking soda, and sugar/butter/egg mixture.
Fill each muffin hole about 1/2 way.
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

  1. Awesome! Me and my 3 year old loved making and eating them πŸ™‚ x

  2. I am now making these muffins for the second time. The first time I made these, I made them as muffins and then made a second batch as banana bread. Had to cook for close to an hour, but it tasted just as delicious as the muffins. My boyfriend loves these muffins so much that I doubt I’ll even get to eat any of them. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the recipe!!

    • AdminJamin says:

      I’m SO SO glad you and your boyfriend like them, Jackie! I love how easy they are and they are truly delicious!! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the comment!

      • Can you replace the banana with mango in this recipe or is it inly for bananas? Thr banana is delicious just wanted to try different fruits if that is possible. Thank you

        • Hmm I’m not sure; I’ve never tried it with other fruits. If I had to guess, I would think mangos would work as well. If you try it, let us know how it worked out!! (My husband LOVES mangos)

  3. I love these. My kids devour them, so much easier than bread. Great pin…I have made these probably 5 times. Thanks.

  4. ashleyltd says:

    I just made these, they smell amazing! I’m not sure if I lost something in translating a “stick of butter” to grams, but mine was incredibly incredibly dry… like cookie dough dry? So I’ve added milk… probably close to a cup before it was even close to being muffin-batter quality.

    Wish it luck, will update when I know if they turned out (if my husband will eat them, lol!)

    • AdminJamin says:

      Oh huh I wonder why… I use a stick of butter and they’re not dry at all… could it be a difference in butter we each use?! That’s so weird. But I hope it worked out – good smell is a good sign, right?? πŸ˜€

  5. This has become a family staple. I love banana bread but it always called for buttermilk, which I never have on hand. We have tweaked this a bit by using whole wheat flour and added half a cup of berries, nuts, or chocolate chips. Thanks for the great recipe.

    • AdminJamin says:

      Oh my gosh I love the idea of adding berries / chocolate chips /nuts!!! Thanks for the tip! πŸ™‚

  6. Stephanie says:

    Going to try these for a bake sale next week. Some with dark chocolate chips and some with nuts! Do you use salted or unsalted butter?

  7. Zbubabeanz says:

    I love making banana bread and for some reason have never thought to make muffins with it. Thanks for the idea. I tweaked it a little and added some oats. We’ll see how it turns out. πŸ™‚

  8. Hi! I want to try the recipe but I dont’ know what you mean by stick of butter. Can you translate it to grams (sorry but i live in Argentina and i dont’ know the meaning).

    • AdminJamin says:

      Sure Laura! I just went to traditionaloven.com to figure this out: 1 stick of butter = 113.4 grams. I hope you enjoy the muffins!! <3

  9. Michelle says:

    I think my oven must run too hot;( they turned pretty dark and crisp when I peaked at 23 minutes. But it still hasn’t stopped me from eating 3 already;)

  10. Felicia says:

    Hello, if I wanted to make a double batch, do I just double all the ingredients? Thanks

  11. Tried your recipe this evening since it seemed so quick. I added some ground flax seed, vanilla, and small cold chunks of cream cheese. Topped them off with a sprinkle of turbinado sugar and fresh grated cinnamon. Also only baked for about 21 min and they were done. Smells amazing and can’t wait to stuff my face!

  12. Can I ask what a ‘stick of butter’ is?
    For example is it the entire block? We get here is 250grams.
    Or is it a smaller amount.

  13. Megan Bard says:

    Delicious! I ended up substituting apple sauce for the butter and added some cinnamon and vanilla for extra flavor. Thanks for this great recipe, my family loves it.

  14. I made these this morning…added a little cinnamon and some chocolate chips…Fabulous!! Definitely a keeper!

  15. Just made these and my husband (and I) loved them!!! I love a simple recipe and this one fit the bill. I added one of those individual servings of applesauce for moistness and roasted pecans!!! This is now my “go to” recipe for banana muffins!!! thanks

  16. I just made these! I tweaked the recipe a little and added honey and walnuts! I hope they turn out great =) Thanks for sharing!

  17. I make them once already and it was quick and easy. They went fast and kids keep bugging me to make more. I just put some in the oven now. I double the recipe this time. That way the kids can take one in the morning on their way to school. Instead of 4 eggs I did two and one cup of cinnamon apple sauce and instead of three cups of flour I did two and one cup of toasted wheat germ. Let’s hope kids don’t notice and I hope it still taste great.

    • Came out great! Everyone loved them. Co workers and kids. They never even noticed the difference. I love how I was able to make them healthier and still taste great. I’m making another double batch today. Lol my fav Hands down. I don’t even like banana bread. I can’t stop eating them.

  18. kaitlyn crouch says:

    I loved these!! I added 1 teaspoon of kosher salt and 1 tsp of vanilla to it, then stirred in 3/4 cups of chocolate chips. Baked 23 mnts. Turned out amazing!!!!

  19. My toddlers and I have made this recipe twice in the last week! I love it because its simple and they really love to help mash the bananas and eat them!! Thank you!! πŸ™‚

  20. I also used a stick of butter and came out with a cookie dough like batter. Do you melt your butter all the way or do you just soften it?

  21. Easy recipe for a quick muffin treat. I added mini chocolate chips and sprinkled with cinnamon before baking.

  22. I use the same recipe except I add a 1/2 cup of sour cream or plain yogurt so they come out nice and moist. Got the tip from theredheadriter.com.

  23. we just took them out of the oven and they look, smell, and taste AMAZING! thanks for the great recipe!☺☺☺

  24. So easy to make and it’s super delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

  25. Just made these…added walnuts, they are delish and simple to make! Thank you!

    • AdminJamin says:

      I LOVE walnuts, but my husband won’t eat anything with nuts in it!! Maybe I’ll make a few muffins just for myself. πŸ˜‰

  26. I just baked the banana bread muffins! They turned out great and look yummy!!! Can’t wait to eat one! too bad i didn’t have any nuts to put in it. Still look yummy!

  27. I love these muffins! I have made them several times and I now have a bunch of extra ripe bananas ready to use for my next batch. I have one question though. Can you freeze a batch? I wasn’t sure if they’d come out mushy if you freeze them.

    • AdminJamin says:

      Yes! I freeze them all the time, and they turn out great! I’ve never noticed any mushiness. Enjoy!! πŸ™‚

  28. I was wondering if anyone knew the nutritional information for these? Can’t Wait to try!!!

  29. I put recess peanut butter chips in them can’t wait for them to get out of the oven

  30. Thank you for this recipe! I was looking for a recipe because I have ripened bananas and want to use it for muffins and I have all the ingredients in my pantry. I added chocolate chips and it came out delicious!! Maybe next time i’ll add some type of nutty crumbs on top, that would be so good!! Thanks!!

    • AdminJamin says:

      Awesome! One reason I love this recipe is I always have all the other ingredients!! Adding nut crumbles is a GREAT idea!!

  31. How long are they good for? My husband is overseas and I want to send him some!

    • AdminJamin says:

      Aww what a great idea! I’ve eaten them like a week later and they were fine… How long does it take to ship? Can you send them frozen?

  32. Baked the muffins smell nice but they’re dry what can l add to come up with a muffin moist batter

  33. Wow and Yummy!! These are officially my favorite muffins ever!! Thank you so much for sharing. We have a tradition in our home. Every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving I make muffins for my kids and we decorate our tree while eating our treats and watching Christmas movies. In the past I always bought a pre-packaged muffin mix. Well those days are over. My kids absolutely loved these.

  34. First time making these and they did not disappoint! My new fave recipe. Hubby loved them!!! Thank you for sharing.

  35. I use this recipe all the time now. Thanks!! Btw: I substitute flax meal mixed with water for the eggs to add omega3 power to the muffins. Just learned that trick! yay!

  36. Emily Morgan says:

    I double the recipe, but only but 1 1/2 cups of sugar.
    Add a couple splashes of milk for moisture and a hint of vanilla extract and they turn out great!
    Excellent recipe!

    • AdminJamin says:

      Awesome!! And great call with the vanilla extract… I think that is my favorite smell, lol! Sure to make any recipe a little yummier!!

  37. Aww. I will make this tomorrow for my mother’s birthday πŸ™‚ Thank you soooo much the recipe πŸ™‚

  38. Quick, easy and Delicious! Added chocolate chips! Turned out perfectly!

  39. These are great, thank you (and I’m not a big banana bread person)! I only used 4 tbs of butter, added 8 tbs of unsweetened apple sauce (4oz.), only 1/2 cup of sugar, and added 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and blueberries=slightly healthier, still super moist, and delicious. I was planning on making them for my one-and-a-half year old’s to-go breakfasts, but the way my husband and I are putting them away…I might have to start running or something.

  40. These are awesome! My 2 year old and 9 year old helped me bake these and my 17 year old and my husband helped us taste test. Everyone agreed: so, so good! I had to cut everyone off, they wanted to eat them all! Easy to make and very delicious! (I’d never made banana bread or muffins from scratch so this was very experimental for me! ) πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for the recipe! It’s a new family favorite!

  41. Thank you for posting your recipe. I am making them right now as a post basketball game snack for my daughter’s team. Plus… a “few” extra muffins for myself!

  42. Hi !! It will be the first time I’ll bake them… just one question… does the muffins are baked with 350 degrees or shall I turn it down ?? thanks for your reply

  43. ashley0207 says:

    I love these muffins, and so do my kids!! Great to have for on the road snacks in the morning or to give them when we get home from school. I had planned on making and freezing… but they disappeared too fast. πŸ˜‰ We only made one substitution, 3/4 cup maple syrup for the sugar (because it was what we had on hand from family).

  44. Excellent, fast, and easy recipe. I added milk chocolate chips and a little cinnamon. Thank you for pining.

  45. I just made these as part of a 260 Random Acts of Kindness for my husbands uncle who passed away last year. Today is his birthday so we are doing Random acts of Kindness in his name. I packaged the muffins with little notes for my Hubs to take to the school he works for and pass out. Can’t wait to try one in a bit for a snack. thought you’d like to know your muffins are helping another kind of cause today.

    Thanks for the recipe. It made my idea come to life because I didn’t need to go to the store since I had the straightforward ingredients.

  46. A-May-zing!! I added a splash of milk, and a couple overripe plums I had. I think these are the best muffins I have had in a long time. Thanks for the recipe <3

  47. These are fabulous! All I need now is an extra large muffin pan so I won’t feel guilty eating more than one!!

  48. i love this recipe!!! Thanks so much. I have added 100g of plain dark chocolate chunks too! Yummy!!! Thanks again! Xx

  49. love love love these muffins! I added a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla for a little extra flavor. Thank you so much for sharing!!

  50. Banana bread muffins says:

    thanks for this recipe the banana bread was delicious.

  51. what type of flour is used?

  52. My husband said these tasted fine, but did anyone else’s explode on top and foam? Like a sugar explosion?


  54. I love this recipe! I add chocolate chips and my roommates loved them!

  55. Paige Stanley says:

    These muffins have been my go to for a couple years now….i know the recipe by heart πŸ™‚ I only use 1/2 cup of real sugar and they are still fantastic!!

    • Thank you so much for this comment!!! <3 I'm definitely going to try it with just 1/2 cup next time; that seems far healthier! Thanks for the tip!!

  56. I LOVE THESE!!!
    I used five bananas, three eggs and doubled the rest of the ingredients and it made three dozen perfect muffins.

  57. These are fantastic! I did 3 bananas and 1/2c chopped pecans and I took the earlier advice about the shorter cook time. 21 mins and they were perfectly done!
