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!

The ingredients are really simple 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.

They’re 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.

350 degrees Fahrenheit. The full recipe is at the bottom of the page. I’ll move it closer to the top as soon as I can!

Absolutely delicious! It made a little more than 12 standard muffins so I put the balance in a mini loaf pan. So easy, I will make them again.

That’s great! But next time don’t be afraid to fill the muffin cups to the top; it’ll just give you larger muffins. It won’t overflow! Thanks so much for leaving a review, anonymous person.

Could you melt butter instead of oil?

Reply
Crystal | Beat Bake Eat January 17, 2022 - 7:35 pm

Yes, you can. But since butter is less moist than oil, I recommended adding 2 extra tablespoons; so 10 tablespoons total.

The muffins turned out great – perfect consistency. Made 12 medium muffins and added blueberries to half and walnuts to the other half. Did it have all purpose flour so I used oat flour. Will definitely make it again – with removing the sugar as they are sweet anyways from the bananas and would like to reduce sugar contents in my diet.

Those are great additions; I prefer blueberries. It’s good to know that oat flour works in this recipe. Glad you’ll be making them again. I completely understand. Thanks so much for leaving a comment.

Made these!! Love these!! Quick and easy. Had to bake slightly longer. Added about 1/8 cup chopped apple bits from some leftover apple slices. Only tip dust apple bits slightly with flour to keep them suspended. I did not use muffin liners. Just sprayed my pan good. Gave it great texture on outside. Love love love these!!! Yum

That sounds really delicious! So the apple bits just stayed at the top? Interesting. Good tip. I love the texture you get from the spray too; so crisp. Thanks for the 5 stars. 😊

Thank you so much for this recipe!! I never leave comments but I had to for this! Super easy, my 3 yr old loved helping along! This is now go to for the last two bananas that are left. My family loved them especially my toddler girls! I read the comments and someone had asked about vanilla extract. I was out of vanilla but had coffee vanilla syrup by skinny syrups (zero sugar, etc) and it came out perfect. It’s a great vanilla extract substitute. Just wanted to let the others know 😊. I added some dark chocolate chips which balanced the sweetness of the bananas.

I’m making these now and they smell amazing.! I especially like the fact these can be made with only one bowl; so easy. I added nuts and dark chocolate chips to mine so they need to cook about longer. Looking forward to tasting them! Thanks for the recipe!
