Banana Muffins

The BEST Banana Muffins you'll ever eat! |

I don’t eat muffins for breakfast very often, but when I do, I gravitate to either banana or blueberry varieties. No doubt a big part of that is that they both tend to have a dessert-like consistency and flavor to them. If I’m going to have something sweet for breakfast, I’m going to go all-in! I’ve been making these easy banana muffins for ages now and I’ve yet to find another recipe that I like better. These turn out fluffy, moist and tasting just like banana bread… a breakfast win, for sure.

I love that this recipe makes more than the standard 12 muffins because they freeze wonderfully. I’ll typically leave a handful of muffins out for a few days’ worth of breakfasts, then freeze the remaining ones. After a quick zap in the microwave, they’re perfect.

These easy Banana Muffins are the best you'll ever eat!


  • 3
    all-purpose flour
  • 1
    baking soda
  • 1
  • ½
    baking powder
  • 2
    granulated sugar
  • 1
    vegetable oil
  • 3
  • 1
    vanilla extract
  • 4
    ripe bananas
    (peeled and coarsely mashed)


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line two standard-size muffin tins with paper liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder in a medium bowl to blend; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla until completely combined. Gently stir in the banana.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and, using a rubber spatula, fold the batter together until just blended.
  5. Fill the prepared muffin cups about two-thirds full. Bake the muffins until the tops are golden brown and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Transfer the muffins to a rack and cool slightly before removing and serving. The muffins can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days, or frozen in a freezer-safe container for up to 1 month.
