Super Soft Banana Muffins

I posted a recipe for whole wheat banana muffins earlier this year. Now I have a better recipe. I increased the amount of bananas and used less flour. The muffins turned out super soft and moist. These muffins got three stars from my husband!

Super Soft Banana Muffins  Print Recipe

2/3 cupsugar
1/2 cupoil
1/2 cupmilk
3large bananas (or 4 medium), mashed
3/4 tspbaking soda
3/4 tspbaking powder
1 tspcinnamon powder
1 1/2~2/3cupswhole wheat flour
2/3~3/4 cupwalnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place baking cups in each cup in the muffin tin. (or lightly grease the cups, sprinkle flour, then shake off excess flour. )
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the egg and sugar until the mixture becomes pale yellow. Mix in the oil, and milk, then add bananas.
  3. Sprinkle baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon powder over the mixture and mix in.
  4. Add the flour to the mixture and mix with a spatula until it's incorporated. Please remember this dough is thinner than regular muffin dough.  Fold in the walnuts.
  5. Add the mixture to the prepared muffin tin. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick near the center. If it comes out clean, it's done. Take out the muffins from the tin, and cool on a rack.
