The Best Banana Muffins

The Best Banana Muffins


Hello again, 

I’m starting off with a bang, two posts in one day! Both are soo good, but the brown butter chocolate chunk cookies have a special place in my heart! Just wait until you make them, you’ll see😏! I’m also whipping up a delicious orzo salad with roasted veggies and basil vinaigrette for this weekend and I’ll share the recipe with you all on Friday!! 

Ok, so moving on! Who always buys to many bananas at the grocery store? It seems like every week half of them become overripe in my fruit bowl before we get to eat them! 

Well lucky for us, we can all make a batch of The Best Banana Muffins this weekend!  I know everyone probably has a Banana Muffin recipe in their repertoire but this one has come to be my favorite!

The mixture of mashed bananas + olive oil make them so light & moist. Full of banana flavor & perfectly sweet with maple syrup. Bonus: they’re super healthy with a combination of oats and whole wheat flour. Add some chopped nuts or dark chocolate chips, yumm!! 

These stay fresh a few days in an airtight container (if they last that long) and they freeze beautifully.  I wrap them individually in plastic wrap and then throw them in the freezer in a zip top bag.  Perfect to grab for breakfast on the go or a afternoon snack!

SO, go make a batch of these babies!!! Bring some to a friend, add them to your weekend brunch or keep them all for yourself!!!  These would make perfect homemade Mother’s Day gift for your Mama, who doesn’t love muffins?  Especially The Best Banana Muffins!!

Happy baking, let me know how they turn out!
