Banana Bread Muffins

Recipe adapted from Just so Tasty.

Melt 1 stick of unsalted butter. Set aside to cool.
Mash 3 ripe bananas in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, add and combine the dry ingredients.
Beat two eggs.
In the bowl with the mashed bananas, add the beaten eggs, sour cream, vanilla, white and brown sugars.
Add the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients and mix well.
With a lined/sprayed muffin tin, fill the liners 3/4 full of batter.
Muffins should take around 20 minutes to bake all the way through.


  • 2 c. unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c. light/dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. (1 stick) unsalted melted butter, slightly cooled
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 c. sour cream
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 medium mashed bananas
  • (optional) 1/2 c. chopped walnuts or 1/2 c. chocolate chips)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a muffin pan with paper liners or spray pan with cooking spray.
  2. Melt the butter in a microwavable bowl. Let it slightly cool. (we don’t want hot butter mixed in with the eggs.)
  3. In a large bowl, mash the 3 bananas. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  5. In another medium bowl, mix the sugars, melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract, and sour cream.
  6. Add the wet ingredients in with the mashed bananas and mix well.
  7. Slowly add the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients. (if you wanted chocolate chips or nuts, this would be the time to add them.)
  8. Fill muffin liners 3/4 full.
  9. Bake muffins at 400 degrees for 5 minutes.
  10. Set temperature to 375 degrees and cook for another 15 minutes. When testing with a toothpick to make sure its done, the toothpick should come out clean. If it looks “wet” bake for another 1-2 minutes then test again.
  11. This made 16 full sized muffins for me.
