Makes 10-12 muffins

These muffins are the ideal snack, perfect for any time of the day! Super easy to prepare, you cannot possibly go wrong with them. Got the recipe from an online site.

Wet Ingredients (2 cups total)
ripe bananas
1/3 cup
MELTED butter or magarine
2 tsp.
2 tbsp
coffee or water
yoghurt OR buttermilk OR milk
enough to make 2 cups TOTAL of wet ingredients (if you use 3 bananas you may only need a few tablespoons; if you use small bananas, you may need to add 2/3s cup or more, just add enough to make the total wet ingredients 2 cups!)
Dry Ingredients
1 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour
3/4 cup
1 tsp.
1/2 tsp.
baking soda
1/2 tsp.
baking powder
1/2 tsp.
1 cup
chopped nuts
(I mix hazelnuts, almonds and walnuts)

The ingredients are divided into "wet" and "dry", you will need one small bowl and one bigger bowl, the wet goes into one bowl, the dry into the other bowl.

Preheat the oven to 180 C and grease your muffin pan or use muffin liners.

Put all of your wet ingredients into the small bowl, making sure you mash your bananas properly with a fork first.

Put all of your dry ingredients into the bigger bowl and stir them together. 

Gradually, add the wet ingredients into the dry ones whilst mixing gently. Be sure not to overmix! Even if it looks like some places have a bit of dry flour spots, thats OK. 

Spoon the lumpy batter into the muffin cups to about three-quarters of the way. Sprinkle the sugar on top. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Be sure to let them cool for a few minutes before turning them out of the pan. Leftovers can be warmed up in the microwave.




Dear fauzia apu,
U said to add coffee in the wet ingredients. so I gather its liquid coffee. can i dissolve some instant coffee in hot water to add to this recipe?

Yes liquid coffee, and yes you can dissolve some instant coffee in hot water. Since you need just 2 tbsp, you can make a cup of coffee, set aside 2 tbsp for the recipe and drink up the rest. :)

just got them out of the oven.. they are OUT OF THIS WORLD!! thank u <3

W/Salaam, you can omit the nuts and can replace them with chocolate chips or just leave them without the nuts. Or try my banana bread recipe, make that into muffins. :)

Thank you so much for your suggestion Fauzia.. Alhamdullilah, The Banana Bread turned out exceptionally well :)

Salaams Fauzia, Is it ok if we leave out the nuts? If so, then do we have to modify any of the ingredients in the recipe?

Fauzia&#039;s Kitchen Fun's picture

I have never tried with any other fruit. Let me know if you do experiment and how they turn out for you.

Fauzia&#039;s Kitchen Fun's picture

Fauzia&#039;s Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, will try and post a strawberry muffin recipe soon.

Fauzia&#039;s Kitchen Fun's picture

Not sure, have never tried that.

Salam fauzia ,I don't have a muffin tray but I do have cupcake tray ,can I make in that.

Fauzia&#039;s Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, yes you can.

I tried these muffins , they r soft but the paper liners doesnt get off, cake sticks to it. i baked them for 20 mins and the skewer comes out clean.

Fauzia&#039;s Kitchen Fun's picture

Thanks for the lovely feedback. That depends on the liners you have, normally good greaseproof liners should peel off easily. Try a different type of liner and see if it helps. Otherwise you can bake them without the liners, just grease the muffin pan well and flour it before adding the batter.

AOA Fuazia,
In dry ingredients sugar should be grinded or granulated??? plzzz reply soon i m just going to make it.....
and how much sugar should be sprinkled on the top???
Thanks in advance for ur answer :)

Fauzia&#039;s Kitchen Fun's picture

Granulated. Just a few pinches on the tops.

I tried the recipe with choco chip instead of nuts, it was really good :) My room mates loved it!!! Thanks Fauzia

Hello Fauzia,
first of all a big thanks to you for sharing such yummy recipes. I am a big fan of yours. Have tried lots of dishes from ur site. Have a question. Want to make these muffins for my friends whom i wil be meeting after 20 yrs. The problem is i am travelling on 6th aug and would reach my destination on 7th morning. And i would meet my friends on 8th early morning. If i make this muffins on 5th evng and wrap each of them in cling sheets...wil they stay fresh till 8th morning? Also if i make your apple cake, will that stay too? Please let me know....will be waiting eagerly for your reply.
Many thanks.

Hi, muffins are normally at their very best the day they are baked or the following day. They could be ok for a couple of days but I would recommend that you maybe do a trial run and make them before the date just to see how they keep. That way when you make them again on the 5th you will know for sure how well they will keep for that long. The apple cake should be able to last that long without any problem.

Asalamu alaikum,
Is it okay if I leave out the ground nutmeg and the cinnamon? Please reply asap. Jazakallahu khairan.

Fauzia&#039;s Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, yes you can omit the nutmeg, the cinnamon too although cinnamon lends the best aroma to these muffins.
