Banana Muffins

 

3 large ripe bananas, mashed

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1/3 cup butter, melted

1 Tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 cup flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

 

Directions

 

1. Preheat oven to 350° F.  Line muffin pan with paper liners, or use non-stick spray.  Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, and set aside.

2.  Combine bananas, sugar, egg, melted butter, and vanilla in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture (do not blend), and mix until smooth. Scoop into muffin pan.

3.  Bake in preheated oven. Bake mini muffins for 10 to 15 minutes, and large muffins for 20-25 minutes.  Muffins will spring back when lightly tapped.

 

Tip: Do not blend the flour in, fold it in by hand.  If you blend it, it will make your muffins dry.
