Pecans, chocolate chips, or walnuts would make a great addition to theses banana muffins, I added 1/2 cup of pecans to the batter and sprinkled a handful of pecans and sugar crystals on top for an added crunch!

Total Time 35 minutes


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup canola oil

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugars,vanilla, egg and canola oil. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Fold in pecans. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean. Sprinkle remaining pecans on the top of each muffin, optional.
