I think banana muffins are the first thing I ever learned how to bake. They were so easy with the “dump and go” mentality. All you had to do (at least in my mom’s recipe) was dump everything in a bowl, mix it up until well incorporated, put in a greased loaf dish and pop in the oven for an hour. DONE! I used to take pride in my banana bread and serve it to anyone and everyone who would come over. I loved seeing ripe bananas because I knew that would be my chance!
Nowadays, I still make banana bread pretty often- specifically banana muffins like these. Boy have I played with the recipe, too! I do not just mix up the classic recipe and go, oh no! I switch it up almost every single time. Sometimes I add diced pineapple, other times, some chocolate chips, and more often than not, a handful of diced pecans. They are what make this treat perfect by adding that little crunch to the end result. This recipe is so easy, and even better than the one I used to make as a kid with my mom. And the fact that they are muffins? Even better!
