"Awesome!!! I tweaked it to make it wheat free and 1) you can't tell the difference 2) they truly are the best banana muffins ever (at least according to me, my 7 year old banana muffin connoisseur, and 6 year old banana muffin hater...she says she only likes these!). To make gluten free, I replaced the all purpose flour with gluten free Bisquick and omitted the baking soda (since it's already in the Bisquick). We had 4 bananas, that needed to go so I also added a 1/4 c more Bisquick to make up for the extra banana. We made some with the brown sugar and some without. They are BOTH delicious!!"


3 large Bananas
1/2 cup Sugar
1 large Egg
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
3/4 cup All purpose flour
1/3 cup Butter; melted

Original recipe makes 12



Preheat oven to 375F / 190C / Gas Mark 5

Mash bananas. Add sugar and slightly beaten egg and mix well. Add the melted butter. Make a well in the middle and add the dry ingredients. Bake for 20 min.

I also remember my mother used to add brown sugar to the tops of the muffins before baking. This made them crunchy on top, but I haven't tried it myself.

baked with the help of my 8 yr old nephew, really easy recipe



Being eaten while still hot - will they make it to a container? Yummy!

Can someone tell me whether I have to mash the bananas or could I just blend them?

Blending the bananas would work just fine. - Elizabeth Schneider 2w ago

Very tasty! I should have used 1 cup of flour like others suggested, but I will give that a try next time. I did also add the brown sugar on top - and that was an amazing choice!!

Made these delicious muffins today. I did use 1 cup of flour instead of 3/4 and 1 tbsp of vanilla. I had some brown sugar and sprinkled muffins on top before putting them in the oven.

Was tasty, but I agree with other reviewers, the batter was too wet. I should have added more flour. Might try again
