Amazingly Easy (& Delicious) Banana Muffins

When life gives you ripe bananas, make these incredible muffins!

With autumn finally here in all its crisp air, gorgeous-colored glory, I unsurprisingly have been bitten by the baking bug lately.  It happens every year without fail.  There's just something about the smell of a something delicious baking in the oven that makes fall feel that much more like fall.

The other day, I had a craving for banana muffins, and I just so happened to have 4 ripe bananas hanging out on the kitchen table.  


I found this recipe over at Cat Can Cook, and I had a winner.  It's undoubtedly very easy and you've probably got all of the ingredients in your kitchen.  It's easy...Mix the wet ingredients together.   Mix the dry ingredients together.  Combine.  Bake.  Voila!

This recipe's simplicity and great results are going to make it a favorite of ours for years to come.

Bon Appetit, my friends!

Amazingly Easy (& Delicious) Banana Muffins
Adapted from: Cat Can Cook
Makes 12 muffins

4 large, ripe bananas, mashed

1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the mashed banana, sugar, egg and butter together in a small bowl. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour. 

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.  Pour into greased muffin tins, and bake in preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes. 

Cook's Notes:
*These are much more flavorful the next day, and they freeze very nicely too!
*Possible additions:  walnuts, toasted pecans, or chocolate chips

I made these and it was delicious. I will say that I wasn't impressed with them at first, but when I ate some the next day- wow! SO much better and incredibly yummy. So if you're giving some away, I suggest making them the night before.
