Delicious Banana Muffins

We all have been there . . .  buying too many banana’s. Sure, they are only $1.49 for a huge bunch at Costco. Sure, you start the week eating them pretty rapidly but there are always a few stranglers that no one wants. Those ripe bananas make for perfect moist delicious muffins. Follow these steps for the perfect kid-approved banana muffins.

First, pre-heat oven to 350º.

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup of room temperature butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Prep muffin pans with non-sticking spray or cupcake liners

In a large bowl, (I used my kitchen aid) sift flour, baking soda, sugar and salt. Set aside.

Then, in a small bowl, mash the bananas adding the teaspoon of milk to help with the fluffiness

Add the butter to the large bowl stir for about 1 minute. Add the eggs and vanilla.

Finally mix in bananas, sour cream and 1/2 cup of walnuts.

Fill muffin pan adding remaining walnuts to top of muffins.

  • Bake for 16-18 minutes for mini muffins and 20-22 minutes for regular sized muffins. Timing ranges depending on oven. Keep an eye on them, when they are golden brown. The mini-sized muffins are the perfect size for small children’s hands.
  • Cool on a wire rack. Store in a air tight zip lock bag or container.
