Nothing beats a hot cup of coffee paired with a moist banana muffin in a cold morning. I can already taste it in my head! Banana, in itself, is a refreshingly awesome tropical fruit. Now, when used in a muffin, it just brings another level of awesomeness!
Banana, Meet Muffin
Banana is awesome, no arguing with that. Muffin is amazing too! One day, a banana was taking a leisurely walk in the park, and he met muffin. Instantly, they fell in love with each other, and they became happy together.
I can imagine it was a magical scene, a true culinary destiny fulfilled!
This elongated, yellow, tropical fruit is a superfood. It is packed with protein, carbohydrate, vitamins, and minerals! Banana is rich in potassium and other trace minerals which can keep your heart and muscles if perfect working condition.
Sweet muffin can be easily mistaken as a cupcake. But, the difference is, cupcakes do not offer savory varieties. Muffins are usually served as a breakfast. But if you are like me, I can’t help but eat banana muffins throughout the day.
Banana muffin is fairly easy to prepare. You may take about 10 minutes preparing all the stuff on your countertop and another 20 minutes in your oven. After that, you can knock yourself out with a freshly baked, hot, and a moist banana muffin!
Awesome Ways to Enjoy Banana Muffin
When banana muffin gets to become boring, there are some ways to make it better! Here are a few tricks to enjoy more banana muffin in your life.
Honey Banana Muffin
The simplest way to enjoy banana muffin is eating it straight out from the oven. But if you want it a little tangy and sweeter, a few smears of honey can help you with that.
Peanut Butter and Banana Muffins
Not only is peanut a great source protein, but it can also compliment your muffin and make it better. Cut your muffin in half and scoop a spoon of your favorite peanut butter. Smudge it, and take a bite. I love this with a hot cup of tea. It gives this snack a clean and revitalizing finish.
Chocolatey Banana Muffin
This follows the same drill as the above. Grab a jar of your favorite chocolate spread, smear and take a bite!
Basic Banana Muffin Recipe
Buying huge bags of banana muffin can become quite costly in the long run. So it is best if you could learn it to make it on your own. And look at the great side of this, you can make it anytime you want it and get into coma eating a banana muffin!
Here is a basic recipe to make banana muffin. Listed below are the items you will need.
3 Large bananas (mashed)
1 ounce melted butter
¾ cup turbinado sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 ½ cup flour
½ tsp salt
- Step 1.
Set your oven to 350 degrees and heat it up before preparing all the other ingredients. This gives your oven time to spread heat evenly on all sides.
- Step 2.
Have your muffin tray a single coating of nonstick spray. I prefer to use paper liners for easier cleanup.
- Step 3.
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until you get a smooth batter.
- Step 4.
Fill your tray or your paper liners with the muffin batter and place it in your oven.
- Step 5.
Bake for 15-30 minutes depending on the size of your muffin.
- Step 6.
While waiting for the muffin to cook, prepare your favorite hot beverage.
- Step 7.
Take the muffin out of the oven while enjoying your favorite cup of hot coffee or tea. Make sure to hide all the remaining muffin from plain sight as they may vanish quickly.
We have been enjoying muffins for the longest time in history, and though times may have changed, we still eat our favorite muffins for breakfast or leisurely.
Muffins are great for breakfast. They are easy to prepare, and you can prepare a large batch in advance and eat for the whole week! When banana and muffin met, there was a magical combination of their flavor, and they made it on the list of favorites in no time.
Aside from having it straight from the oven, a banana muffin can be smudged with honey, peanut butter, and chocolate to satisfy your sugary cravings!
Now if you can just make a huge batch on your own, you wouldn’t have to spend lots when buying them from the local bakery.
