I had bananas asking to be made into banana muffins one weekend. However, my go-to favorite recipe calls for sour cream and I had no sour cream in the fridge. So I went to look for a banana muffin recipe and settle on this recipe for basic banana muffins.

I think they turned out great , but I still love my go-to recipe. However, my husband said he preferred this recipe. I recommend giving both recipes a try and see what you like. However, if I have no sour cream on hand when I want to make muffins again. This is the recipe I will be going to.

These begin with mixing some mashed bananas with an egg, oil, and vanilla. Just mix to combine. Then the dry ingredients come in. You have flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Just mix in the dry ingredients until moistened. Then it’s time to scoop into a muffin tin.

I always line my tin with cupcake liners. It makes for easy clean up and helps make those muffins quicker to make. You can skip the step of greasing the tin. These muffins cook at 375 degrees for about 18 minutes.

Muffins are the perfect on the go breakfast. However, they also are perfect to include as part of a weekend breakfast or brunch.
