Perfect Banana Muffins Recipe {with video tutorial}

Music: Music by HookSounds

These banana muffins are not only moist and delicious and bursting with flavor (everything a muffin should be), but they are also so easy to make. I made these twice with my 3-year-old and she was able to do most of the work if I helped her measure it all out.

The best banana muffin recipe. The perfect breakfast recipe idea to use overripe bananas. This muffin recipe is so easy and the best muffins we've ever made!

We love these muffins so much that my kids get excited when we have over ripe bananas and they beg for me to make them. They are our favorite! AND they make the house smell amazing!

Author: Melissa


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed about 1 1/2 cups
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup butter melted


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Coat muffin pans with non-stick spray, or use paper liners.
  • Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl, whisk to combine; set aside.
  • Combine bananas, sugar, egg, vanilla and melted butter in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture, and mix until dry ingredients are just combined. Do not over mix (this will make your muffins tough). Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter each muffin tin.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. Muffins will spring back when lightly tapped.

    Would like some good ideas for zuchinni, they are taking over my house.ReplyCancel

    • Melissa Hadfield

      I have a few zucchini recipes on the blog. I like to use zucchini in soups, spaghetti sauce and in stir fry. I don’t have any recipes of baked goods with zucchini yet, I should get on that. It’s a good excuse to make something tasty. 🙂ReplyCancel

    • Melissa Hadfield

      You can also shred zucchini and freeze it or leave it on your neighbors’ porches and ring the doorbell and run. Sometimes that’s the only way to get rid of it. 🙂ReplyCancel

    Can I sub anything for the butter?ReplyCancel

  • Rhonda

    Yes!!! The best! So moist and flavorful!! Thanks for the recipe!ReplyCancel

  • Gina

    This tasted pretty good, but came out a little soft. I realize that’s largely due to the mashed banana. However, I would increase the baking temperature to 365 degrees next time I try these. I added chocolate chips and cinnamon. Nice change of pace from making banana bread. Thanks for sharing the recipe.ReplyCancel

  • Jessica Plowman

    I made these this morning! Thanks Melissa. I love that these came up when I did a quick search. 🙂 Yummy!ReplyCancel

    I just made these a few minutes ago and added 1/4 cup of peanut butter for a littlevdiff flavour and wow,they are soooooo good. Thanks for the recipe!!ReplyCancel

  • I just made these. I followed the recipe directly, even though I am in Idaho and it usually messes up the recipe.
    I didn’t tell my husband what they were called, and he just said “Honey, these are the PERFECT banana muffins”.
    They turned out wonderfully. Golden brown on top, slight spring, moist all through but not wet or doughy.
    Thank you so much for this recipe. It is actually our 2nd year anniversary today and I wanted to make my Lovely something that he would enjoy. Food has always been the way to his heart.
    5 stars, 10/10.
    Smile Always,

    Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe. I’ve just baked it a few mins ago and it was so yummy! I ate 2 of it right after it came out of the oven. I substitute all purpose flour for organic spelt flour and used salted butter.ReplyCancel

  • Emily Pavlakos

    So delicious! I made a batch of these with my 20mo daughter and she loved helping! To make them more toddler friendly, we made mini muffins instead of regular sized and got 44 out of the batter – half chocolate chip and half regular! My toddler loved them!! I froze the extras and she’s been having muffins for breakfast for a week now. Thanks!ReplyCancel

    I just made these this morning for my family (it’s Christmas Eve) and they were a HUGE hit! My only disappointment was that mine turned out flat on top, whereas yours pictured look tall and cute. Any ideas? The texture was absolutely perfect all the way through. Thanks!ReplyCancel

    These are incredible. I’ve made four batches now, and my kids and husband devour them. Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • Very good! Held up to substitutions for my son’s egg allergy too! I added one tablesppon of chickpea water + 1 tsp cornstarch in place of egg. I had softened butter on hand so I didn’t bother melting it. Finally, I also added 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips just for fun. The muffins were soft, fluffy and delicious!ReplyCancel
