This is my favorite recipe for muffins & bread. We make these into muffins to eat for breakfast (which is a great on-the-go-breakfast option, just pair with a string cheese). This will be a great recipe to make pre-Thanksgiving so everyone can have a simple breakfast the day of the feast. Accompany the muffins with yogurt or a glass of milk for a well-rounded breakfast. The muffins can also be used as snacks after school. During the holidays, I use mini-loaf pans to make delicious gifts for my friends, family, and colleagues. Wrap the bread in saran wrap, add a ribbon, and include a copy of the recipe for a nice & delectable gift.
Recipe type: Muffins/Bread
Cuisine: American
Serves: 16
  • 4 bananas, ripe
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbs baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour
  1. Preheat the oven to 350° Bake.
  2. Place the bananas and sugar in a large bowl and blend with an electric mixer. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  3. While the bananas and sugar are standing, I prep the other ingredients by measuring them out.
  4. Add the applesauce and eggs and beat well. Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  5. Pour into a muffin tin coated with nonstick vegetable spray. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  6. *If using a mini-muffin pan, bake for only 35 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Cool on a wire rack.
