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!

That Was Quick!
