Banana muffins are a quick and easy sweet treat to make. You can have them with your coffee or tea in the morning, as an afternoon snack, or even as part of a meal. There are two ways of making banana muffins: from scratch (with all-purpose flour) and from freeze-dried bananas (without any flour).
1/2 cup flour (or gluten-free flour)
2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp cocoa powder (optional)
1/2 tsp baking powder or 1 tsp baking soda (or both if you’re feeling adventurous!) *(If you don’t have buttermilk, use 2 tbsp vinegar to 1 cup milk instead.)*
How to make banana muffins
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees and grease a 12-hole muffin tin with butter or oil.
- Sift together the dry ingredients into a large bowl, then add the wet ingredients and mix well until you have an even batter consistency (you can use an electric mixer if you like).
- Add the mashed banana and mix again until combined; this will be thick and sticky!
- Divide the mixture evenly between your prepared tins, filling each one about three quarters full – don’t worry if it looks like there isn’t enough because once they’re baked they’ll rise quite significantly! Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top and cooked through in their centres (they should spring back when pressed lightly). Cool completely before removing from pan; serve warm or at room temperature with butter if desired.*
