This is awesome! So soft and great muffin-top. Just love it!
These are the best I ever made!! Delicious yummy
Just made them! SOOOO GOOD!
I used this recipe to make mini loaves of banana nut bread, added pecans instead of walnuts and brown sugar instead of regular sugar. Came out PERFECTLY DELISH! Giving these babies out for Christmas.
Probably the best banana bread I’ve ever made! Also used coffee, nutmeg, and cinnamon as that comment suggested, and used only 1/2 cup white sugar, and 3/8ths cup brown sugar. Threw in some pecan pieces and semi-sweet chocolate chips, too! Thanks for this great recipe. Will probably be my go to from now on.
This is a really good recipe. Moist and delicious.
Easy to make, so moist and Very yummy. I added sugar sprinkles on top before baking. Family gives thumbs up!
Easy to mix up. I added whole fresh cranberries and pecans. I baked in 4 mini loaf pans that were greased and floured. So tasty and moist.
SO. Good.!!!!!! Maybe the best I’ve ever had and they were so easy. I added pecans.
OMG… the best Banana Nut Muffin I’ve ever eaten! I did take a reviewers advice and added 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg. Those spices along with the espresso made for unbelievable flavors. I also sprinkled a little sugar crystals on top of each muffin and I found the “perfect” Banana Nut Muffin.
Easy fast delicious recipe!
why do i need the paper in muffin tray?
cant i just grease muffin tray like in your banana bread recipe?
Great muffins, so easy! Per the suggestions by previous bakers, I also added cinnamon and Nutmeg. A half a teaspoon of cinnamon and a quarter teaspoon of nutmeg. Coffee definitely helps the flavor! I used a quarter cup of brown sugar and a half a cup of sugar instead of all sugar. Made cinnamon sugar and put about a half a teaspoon on top of each muffin before I baked them. These will be great for breakfast! Great recipe!
Omg!!! These are the best “muffins” I’ve ever had! I say muffins in quotes because I used silicon mini loaf molds instead. I think the instant espresso I added really made it pop! My husband enjoyed them and this is definitely on our list of faves. Thank you for posting. I just have one question-how do you know when the mixture is overworked?
Hi, AJ — Glad the muffins were a hit! In this case knowing when they are over worked is really about knowing what “just until combined looks like” You don’t need stir the batter a second beyond when it looks like a homogeneous mixture.
I just made these and they are delicious! I like my banana muffins to have a little bit of the molasses flavor of brown sugar, so I substituted 1/4 cup of brown sugar and dropped the white sugar to 1/2 cup. I also added a sprinkle each of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. It would be good without too, but I happen to like the little bit of spice flavor. I made 24 mini muffins and still used nearly the entire 20 minute cooking time.
Best banana nut muffins I’ve ever made! My kids are asking for the recipe. Definitely a keeper.
My husband is the expert baker but today II had the determination to not waste two very ripe bananas, and more time than he. I am a new baker but the clear instructions, non-requirement of a mixer and inclusion of coffee attracted me to this recipe. Followed directions to the letter, I used 3/4 cup cane sugar, strong Nespresso machine made coffee and 1/2 cup each of pecan pieces and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Used the bounce back doneness test and the clean toothpick too and took them out at just the right time, 2 mins after the initial checking. They are everything I hoped they’d be, and he strongly approves. Taking the batch on my weeklong trip to WDW for breakfast on the go and snacks but I fear there won’t be any left after day one! They are simply fantastic— thank you! I feel as though I can become a baker — with time, with this recipe completion launch!
These came out amazing! Aside from the optional coffee this is the same recipe as the Banana Bread recipe on this site and I loved the tips about making it more or less sweet. I left out the coffee and added a few shakes of cinnamon. I cooked the muffins in a silicon muffin pan on a sheet pan and they were done in right over 20 minutes. My two bananas were not large, so if you have more banana, you may have to bake for longer.
Recipe was delicious! Bake time was just far too short – took about twice as long.
I think they are done, but not browned. What did I do wrong?
Hi, Jane! If they are done, and they taste great I wouldn’t worry too much about the coloring. Perhaps you didn’t brew your coffee for the mix quite as strong or your baking soda is old (it contributes to browning in baked goods).
