Ingredients

  • cup (80g) butter, melted
  • 4 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • ¾ cup (165g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • cups (186g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. Melt butter and set aside to slightly cool.
  3. In a large bowl, mash bananas with a fork. (You can use up to 5 regular-size bananas or 6 small bananas in this recipe.)

  4. Add butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla and mix well.
  5. Add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and mix until ingredients are JUST incorporated. (Be careful not to overmix)
  6. Add 2-3 tablespoons of batter to muffin pan lined with cupcake liners. (This is about ⅔ full)

  7. Bake for 14-16 minutes, or until center of muffin springs back when touched and center no longer appears wet. Be careful to not bake muffins for too long; you do not want burnt edges.

  8. Remove muffins from oven and let sit for a few minutes before serving.
