Banana Muffins

These Banana Muffins are so tender and moist with the most delicious banana flavor. They only take several basic ingredients and can be made in about 30 minutes!

Trust me when I say that these Banana Muffins are tender and moist. They get their soft texture from the three bananas that are added to the batter. It's best when you wait until the bananas are extra ripe, even if the peels are black, because the riper they are, the sweeter and stronger the flavor is.

You'll start by baking the muffins for 5 minutes at 425º F before turning it down to 350º F and letting them continue to bake for another 10-12 minutes. This high temperature helps ensure that they'll rise for that beautiful height.

A FEW NOTES BEFORE WE GET STARTED

Preheat your oven to 425º F. Prepare a muffin pan with muffin liners. In a large bowl, mix together the brown sugar and melted butter.

Add in the egg and mix until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. In a small bowl, smash down the bananas until smooth.

Add the smashed banana, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and continue to mix on low just until combined.

Scoop the batter into 12 muffins liners, so that each liner is about ¾ full. Bake muffins for 5 minutes. Turn oven down to 350º F and continue to bake for another 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Let muffins cool slightly on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
