Easy Banana Bread Muffins – Great for breakfast or a snack, grab and go Easy Banana Bread Muffins are perfectly moist and sweet.
Easy Banana Bread Muffins is a very simple recipe that I use all the time with simple ingredients that we always have in our pantry and fridge. The banana bread muffins turn out great every time.
Sometimes to change things up we will add some fresh blueberries, chopped strawberries or raspberries. The berries add such a fresh flavor and an added flavor of deliciousness. They are great for a nice change. Oh and yes chocolate chips are always a huge hit with the family too.
When making Easy Banana Bread Muffins make sure you use bananas that are really overripe. So overripe in fact that you don’t even need to mash them almost. I almost just mash them in the peel before I peel them then just a little mash with a fork and that’s all you need.
There’s something about having baked goods in the house. Besides the smell of baked goods permeating through the house, the look on everyone’s face when they see what you have made when they walk in the door puts a big smile on everyone’s face.
If you are so inclined you could double this recipe and make a double batch of these scrumptious muffins. Make one plain batch and another with berries or chocolate chips. The muffins freeze well so you can defrost as you need them. Take one out every night for your morning breakfast! Because we freeze these we don’t add a crumble topping usually but you certainly could if you like.
So buy some bananas let them get super ripe and try these muffins. They will be a great change from your regular breakfast bagel or toast. Warm them in the morning and spread some butter on them if you like.
