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 2 – Line your muffin baking tin with paper baking cups, or lightly grease your muffin tin.

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!
