Super-Moist Banana-Nut Muffins

Servings : 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)

  • 2-3 ripe bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup MELTED butter or magarine
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 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 sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 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.

    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
      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.
