2 banana muffin recipe

A banana muffin recipe with only 2 bananas may not sound ideal because the more bananas the better right? Wrong! You can still make perfectly moist banana muffins with just two bananas.

I’ve done it many (many, many, many) times and now I’m sharing this simple and easy recipe with you!

It’s one of the best ways to use up those lingering overripe bananas.

Foolproof Banana Muffins

This recipe never lets me down. It’s pretty much perfect every time I make it and I’ve made it so many times over the years that I’ve got it memorized.

It’s a one bowl banana muffin recipe that requires no mixer, takes only 10 minutes prep, and you can’t mess this up because it’s a foolproof recipe!




Ingredients

{Full recipe at the bottom of the page}

  • 2 overripe bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

These are really simple ingredients and I’m sure you probably already have most, if not all of them on hand.

These babies are made with oil and they are completely dairy-free (no butter and no milk).

There’s just a touch of cinnamon. You can add more or omit it completely depending on your personal preference. I absolutely love cinnamon so it’s never an option for me to leave it out.

How to make Banana Muffins with 2 Bananas

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prep the muffin pan.
  2. In a large bowl combine bananas, sugar, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Beat in the oil, eggs, and vanilla extract.
  4. Add flour and baking soda, and gently mix until combined.
  5. Scoop batter into the muffin pan.
  6. Bake for 18 – 19 minutes.
  7. Cool in pan 5 minutes.

Easy-peasy.

These muffins are just awesome for when you want great, classic taste without having to do a lot of work to get it and also with the simplest ingredients.

Many banana muffin recipes turn out to be banana cupcakes but these have the texture of a muffin. Rounded tops, thick crumbs, hearty and not overly sweet; just the way muffins should be.

They’re slightly crisp on the outside, thanks to the granulated sugar, and they’re soft and fluffy on the inside. I’m a brown sugar muffin kind of girl but granulated sugar works so well in these. Sometimes I substitute some of the white sugar with brown sugar and that works out great too.

I like to make these for breakfast the night before. And if I’m in a hurry I just take them on the go.

Homemade muffins are the best! And this moist banana muffin recipe is a keeper.




In my household bananas are a staple. Whenever I go to the grocery store I always pick up a bunch or two. I buy so many bananas sometimes but surprisingly they never end up in the freezer or the garbage. They always end up in bellies and it’s recipes like this one that make me keep going back for more.

It may be typical but this will always be one of my go-to ripe banana recipes.

Thanks so much for this recipe! It was easy and they turned out amazing! I managed to get 8 muffins out of this recipe and my kitchen smells fantastic now. I use to throw out my overly rip bananas but now I will just make these muffins. These small batch Banana Muffins are AWESOME. They are so moist and have just the right amount of banana flavour. Will be making them all the time. Thanks so much for the great recipe.

Thanks for the recipe. Subbed Avocado oil in for the vegetable oil. 1/2 Cassava flour and 1/2 Coconut flour due to dietary restrictions. Delicious!

These were sooo good. I was looking for a recipe with just 2 bananas but didn’t just make 4 muffins from it. This was such a crowd pleasure in my home. I substituted the vegetable oil for olive oil and I ran out of vanilla abstract so I used maple syrup instead.

I’m thrilled they were a hit! Good thinking with those substitutions. Thanks so much for leaving a comment!

These turned out great! do you think these would be OK to freeze?

Reply
Crystal | Beat Bake Eat August 4, 2020 - 7:49 pm

That’s so good to hear! Definitely. I usually just toss them in a freezer bag, remove as much air as possible, and freeze. You can also wrap each individual muffin in foil or freezer wrap.
