I’ve got what I think is the best moist banana muffins recipe around. I make banana muffins a lot! I always seem to have extra bananas that are too ripe to eat but I don’t want them to go bad. So what do I do? Whip them up into banana muffins of course! I’ve used different recipes over the years, but I’ve taken the best of all of them and created what I believe are the best moist banana muffins. And a nice perk? They’re super easy to make!

Moist Banana Muffins: Directions
Below are 8 super easy steps to making the best moist banana muffins.
Step 1 – Preheat your oven to 350ºF.
Step 3 – In a bowl, mix together the ingredients for bowl #1.
Step 4 – In another larger bowl, mix together the ingredients for bowl #2. (No beater necessary.)
Step 5 – Fold the mixture from bowl #1 into bowl #2.
Step 6 – Scoop your muffin batter into your muffin cups using a 1/4 cup measuring cup. (I love using my rubber spatula to help get out all the batter.)
Step 7 – Bake for 20-25 minutes. (When muffins are done they will have started turning light golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin will come out clean.)
Step 8 – Place the muffins on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
