These banana bread muffins are so delicious. Made with yummy bananas we love, and perfect for an on-the-go snack or breakfast.

Most people grew up on banana bread and banana muffins. Everyone has a grandmother or mom who whipped some sort of banana bread up with their leftover bananas for the whole family to enjoy. Nothing beats banana bread! It’s so damn comforting and I haven’t met a soul who doesn’t like it. These banana bread muffins are perfect for an on-the-go breakfast, a lunchtime snack, or to pack in your gym bag for a little fuel pre- or post-workout.

๐Ÿฒ Ingredients

Bananas: The best bananas for baking are super ripe ones, like the more brown spots the better. You can also use ones that have gone brown that you’ve frozen, just thaw them out and mash them up. They’ll look bad, but they aren’t!

I made this banana muffin recipe with my friends at Chiquita because I love their bananas, and I don’t just love them, they’re the world’s most loved. For more than 100 years they’ve been producing the best bananas and delivering them around the world. You’re lying if you don’t remember growing up with Miss Chiquita in your home. Bananas themselves also have so many health benefits, and they’re a fruit that you can always, without a doubt find in your grocery store (which hey, that can be hard in Canada during the winter months). Some of those benefits are: 

  • One of the best fruit sources for vitamin B6
  • One medium banana will provide you with 10% of your daily vitamin C needs
  • They are loaded with potassium
  • Can help aid digestion
  • They give you energy 

Flours: I use both all-purpose flour and almond flour. They both bring different textures to this recipe, and the almond flour brings great health benefits like monounsaturated fat, which can help keep cholesterol under control. 

Eggs: Egg replacement is my go-to for baking as a vegan. However, you can also make a flax egg or if you aren’t vegan, you can use a regular egg. 

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿณ How to Make Banana Bread Muffins

1. After greasing your muffin tins, and pre-heating your oven, you’ll want to mix the dry ingredients into a bowl except for the sugar. That’ll come in a separate step!
2. Next, in a different bowl, you’ll want to mash your bananas with a fork and whisk in the melted oil or butter, plus brown sugar, egg replacement, vanilla, and almond milk. 
3. Combine together both bowls of ingredients, the dry, and the wet with the bananas, and stir it all up with a spoon until it’s well combined. 
4. Dollop equal amounts of batter into your muffin cups and bake for around 5 minutes at 425F first, before switching to 350F for an additional 15 minutes. This will give your muffins the perfect consistency!

๐Ÿ—’ Tips & Tricks

  • Can I swap out coconut oil? Yes, you can use vegan or regular butter instead of coconut oil
  • Bananas: I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again, use super ripe bananas. They will look like they’ve gone bad but this is the perfect way to use them up versus throwing them out
  • Egg replacement: If you aren’t vegan, you can use egg. If you are, you can make a flax egg, or 1/4 cup apple sauce (per egg)

๐Ÿ‘ How to Store Leftovers

Store in an airtight container on your counter. To freeze, layer parchment paper in between layers of muffins in a tightly sealed container.

๐Ÿค” Common Questions

Why use two different types of flour?

I find adding both almond flour and all-purpose helps make them nice and fluffy. It’s perfectly dense but also airy.

How do you make vegan banana muffins?

Most muffin recipes call for butter of some sort and egg. You’ll need to use an egg replacement or a flax egg in place of the real eggs and swap out the butter for a vegan alternative. If the recipe calls for milk, you can use any plant-based milk option.

These are a hit! I had a bunch of bananas I needed to use up. What a great recipe! I made a flax egg (mixed 1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 3 tbsp water and let sit for a few minutes). I ended up getting 12 muffins out of this batch. Bonus! ๐Ÿ™‚

The BEST banana muffins…ever! I just wanted something simple and classic. These are so moist and delicious! I used GF flour (and almond flour) instead of all-purpose and they were still amazing. I honestly can say there is no need to try other recipes ever again. Do they freeze well?!
