Yummy Banana Muffin Recipe


banana muffin recipe

Muffins are great for breakfast, brunch or a healthy afternoon snack.  Although this recipe only calls for bananas, you could also add nuts or flaxseed.

This banana muffin recipe is an all time favorite in our house.  So much so that we often hope for overly ripe bananas quite often!  The kids love these and so do the adults.


  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 ripe Bananas
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Blend the shortening, brown sugar and vanilla. We use butter or olive oil for best results.  Then add the two eggs, beating well.  Blend in the mashed bananas.  Add flour, soda and salt.  Mix well.  Pour into muffin tins lined with  cupcake liners.  Bake in 350 degree oven for 20- 25 minutes depending on your oven temperature.  Muffins should be slightly brown.  Makes about 12 muffins.
