  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 bananas ripe, roughly mashed with a fork
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter unsalted, melted
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pecans chopped


  • Prepare oven and muffin pan: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a 6 or 12 muffing baking pan with cooking spray, or line it with muffin liners.
  • Combine dry ingredients: In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • Combine wet ingredients: In another bowl whisk the mashed bananas with the brown sugar, eggs, butter, milk and vanilla extract.
  • Make batter: Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and using a spatula mix everything until the flour is moistened, don't over mix, and keep in mind the batter will be a bit lumpy. Fold in the chopped pecans.
  • Spoon into muffin tin: Spoon the muffin batter (I used an ice cream scoop) into the prepared muffin pan. The batter should be enough for 12 small muffins or 6 jumbo muffins.
  • Bake: Turn down the oven to 400 F degrees and place the muffins in the oven. Bake them for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.


Storage: Transfer your muffins to a resealable bag and store in your pantry or on the counter top for 3 – 4 days, no need to refrigerate! This recipe freezes well too, just place them in resealable freezer bag and press the air out. They will keep fresh for up to 3 months, just allow to thaw on the counter when ready to eat!
