Let’s Make It!
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a muffin tin with baking cups to get started.
- In one bowl, mash up three ripe bananas until creamy.
- Add one-third cup of melted unsalted butter to the mashed bananas and mix well.
- Sprinkle in half a cup of sugar, one beaten egg, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract, give that a good ol’ stir.
- In another bowl, combine one and a half cups of all-purpose flour, one teaspoon of baking soda, and a pinch of salt.
- Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined but remember – no overmixing, folks!
- Optional bonus: toss in a handful of dark chocolate chips or chopped walnuts for a delightful crunch, if that’s your cup of tea.
- Take your mixture and evenly distribute it into your prepared muffin tin.
- Pop them into the oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
- Allow the muffins to cool down a bit before taking them out of the tin.
- Enjoy these heavenly treats while they’re warm, they’ll disappear before you know it!
