Easy Homemade Banana Muffin Recipe


Alyssa loves sharing her family's favorite recipes with the world. She is a wife and a mom who enjoys drinking copious amounts of coffee.


Bananas are delicious. I enjoy them sliced up and added on top of frozen yogurt, while my husband loves adding them to his cereal. We also love making banana smoothies and milkshakes. Recently, we bought a bunch of bananas and ate all but one rather quickly. It sat out on the counter ripening for a few days.

As a fun surprise, my son and I decided to make homemade banana muffins. However, we had two problems: I didn't have enough butter on hand and I only had one banana.

Problem solved! This recipe doesn't need butter or milk, only requires one large banana, and it is simple and easy to make! Whip up a batch this weekend for a delicious breakfast or snack that the family will love!

I just love desserts with bananas and especially ones that are easy to make. It sounds like these muffins would be lower in calories, too, as they don't have butter and milk in them. A great breakfast item or snack when you have a sweet tooth. Thanks, Alyssa, for sharing this recipe!
