Ingredients for Easy Banana Muffins

This easy banana muffin recipe requires some pretty basic ingredients like bananas, flour, and milk.

Flour – Use All-purpose flour or your favourite 1:1 flour. Spoon and level the flour when measuring it, otherwise you’ll wind up with dense muffins.

Butter – Use melted unsalted butter, although melted coconut oil works too.

Bananas – Use overripe bananas. If you have frozen ones, that works too, just thaw them out. Don’t get too hung up on the number of bananas. If you only have 2 bananas, that will work too, there will just be less banana flavour.

Vanilla Extract – Use pure vanilla extract for the best flavour, but artificial is just fine too.

Eggs –  Bring to room temperature before baking with eggs if possible. They mix better and the dough will rise better.

Milk – Use your favourite milk, whether cow milk or plant based, this is so we don’t end up with a dry muffin.

Sugar – Sweetens the muffin. I use half brown and half white but you can use all of one or the other if preferred.

Baking Soda – Helps the cupcakes rise in the oven. Make sure to test for effectiveness before using if you’ve had it longer than 6 months.
