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.
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! The recipe is super easy. The muffins are moist and packed with flavor. My house smells delicious.
What is the best way to store them? Can you freeze them?
Was easy peady but really dry and didn’t have banana taste at all just a dry, crispy topped dry cinnamon flavored muffin.
can you use applesauce instead of veg oil?
These muffins are wonderful! I never understand people who change a recipe without trying it as written! I always make it as written the first time, after that, if I change anything, it’s no longer the recipe! I understand dietary restrictions, but there all kinds of sites devoted to them! You spent time creating this recipe, Ladies, at least try it once!
