Notes

Expert Tips
  • Extra ripe bananas are perfect to use in this banana muffins recipe - the riper the banana, the sweeter the muffins.
  • If you like banana nut muffins, feel free to add in about a quarter cup of chopped nuts.
  • Do not overmix the batter or your muffins will turn out dense and gummy.
