Banana Muffins Recipe

I’ve made these muffins many times and kids and adults love them so much I decided to share here.

First let me say that most of my recipes I found online or was given by a friend and I may have tweaked a bit to my standards.

I’m no chef by any means, but when I find a recipe I like I save it on my phone and reuse it as much as possible. I enjoy simple baking and got myself a large mini muffin pan for making muffins, meatballs, and veggie fritters.

I have three main muffin recipes I like, this banana one, an applesauce one, and my favorite, a chocolate chip one. The banana muffins and applesauce muffins I mostly make for the kids because they have more basic ingredients and are good for kids with more common allergies because they don’t contain dairy or eggs (which I substitute for applesauce). I like to make these in big batches for party or big gathering type occasions with other moms and their kids and they go quickly because they’re so easy to eat.

Again, I’m not by any means a Pro in the kitchen, but with a few years of following a few simple recipes I’ve come to realize that some kitchen products are worth having and I use them all the time!

My favorites for muffins are my KitchenAid Mixer, my Oversized Mini Muffin Pan, silicone spatulas, and batter scoop. Click the images below for my Amazon Affiliate Links and check out my Idea List on Amazon full of great bakeware products.

Banana Muffins Recipe

Prep Time: 8 minutes

Cook Time: 17 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Banana Muffins Recipe


  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 large eggs (I use 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce instead)
  • 2/3 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium bananas)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • cinnamon sugar topping*


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray.
  3. In medium bowl (I use my mixer), combine the sugar, oil, eggs and stir with wire whisk.
  4. Add in bananas and vanilla, whisk until combined.
  5. Add in flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and stir together until just combined.
  6. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Each muffin cup will be almost to the top. About 3/4 full.
  7. Sprinkle batter with a little bit of your cinnamon sugar mix.
  8. Bake 17 to 21 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and muffins are high and rounded on top.
  9. Serve warm or let cool completely. Enjoy!


This batch is for 2 bananas, which should make approximately 12 regular sized muffins or 24 mini muffins.

*Cinnamon Sugar can be purchased or mixed at home. A good ratio for the blend is 1/4 cup granulated white sugar with 1 tablespoon of cinnamon.
