I am vegan and didn't add any eggs. Three banana's subtituted it fine! SO DELICIOUS!

Light and fluffy. Easy to make and delicious.

Can I freeze these muffins?

CHELSEA SUGAR: Yes, these muffins freeze well! :)

I loved these so much! They were light and fluffy, they rose beautifully and weren’t to sweet. I’m 12 and they were a piece of cake. My family all loves this even my little sister who is very picky and doesn’t like banana. I sprinkled a little bit of sugar on them to make the top crunchy. I would 100% recommend making this even if you aren’t a very experienced baker.

Fantastic recipe. Grandkids and parents love them. Family favourite.

Easy and delicious

Sadly my muffins didn’t rise well and I think it’s due to the amount of bananas. They were moist but heavy

So great! The whole family loved the recipe and would definitely recommend to anyone.

Decided to get rid of some bananas out of our freezer found your recipe it was so easy to make my wife loved them great recipe no sticking they came out of moulds very easily
fully recommend I will be making more

These muffins can be made vegan by adding an extra banana and using vegan butter or oil. So good.

Absolutely love this recipe, this one's a keeper. So easy and quick, very minimal ingredients for a tasty cupcake. Works great as mini ones too. =)



So easy to make and they taste amazing. Winner in our household! Thanks for the recipe Chelsea Sugar :-)

very easy to make!! so happy with the results !!

Makes the most beautiful muffins ever. Might be because I made them Such an easy recipe anyone could follow and make. Would had give a 5 star but the recipe doesn’t make enough. Were all gone in half an hour

This recipe is so easy. Recommended.

For the first time EVER the muffin didn't stick to the paper and came away like a proper one. Great tasting muffin and the house smelt devine.

Good taste

Easy as recipe cannot understand why i never made them before

Amazing! So easy to make and they taste great.

Delicious and so easy. Pantry ingredients available always, no special items.
I added cinnamon and nutmeg for added delight.

I reduced the sugar to 125ml. I made this a few times. Easy to make and yummy. I am keeping this recipe. Thanks Chelsea :-)

How to get the muffins out of the paper cases when they stick to the sides!

Great recipe and yummy muffins. I will try this recipe again.

Great recipe always works out, made so many times grandkids love them for school and they freeze well. Have added chocolate chips and walnuts.

I substituted Bananas with Fejoas - delicious! Soooo simple and easy.

These turned out lovely thank you. I just started getting into baking and these were the first thing I made :) thanks

Best recipe ever!!!

Now its my favorite recipe. So easy to make .And so delicious!!
Thank you :)

Love love love this recipe! My family routinely leave 3 bananas uneaten so they will get these muffins in their lunch boxes - also throw in a handful of choc chips for extra deliciousness

Delicious! Thank you Chelsea

This recipe has made the most beautiful tasty things to pull out the oven made to perfection.

Comes out perfect every time.

This recipe makes delicious muffins! They're so quick and easy to make. I added an extra banana and they were super tasty. Will definitely keep this recipe around!

Easy to make and so fluffy

I baked these this morning before work. They turned out perfect and I had to have one immediately - yum! Like others I reduced the sugar down to 1/2 cup (never ending quest to reduce my sugar intake). They took 25 mins in my oven - were lightly browned on top and soft and delicious on the inside. Highly recommend :-)

The muffins were super tasty, moist, and super easy to make. They don't last long! I will make them again soon.

Easy to make and always yummy!

Really goood

Super easy & quick

Good, easy, yummy as. Make every week for kids lunch boxes, I add choc chips and extra bananas.

Really goood

Good easy recipe, moist and light, don't bother adding any salt though as there is salt in the butter

Good quick and easy recipe but slightly salty for my tastebuds so will halve the amount next time.

this was a great recipe halved it but still turned out great! Almost forgot the egg hahahaha

It was very yummy because I added 5gram of salt and 100ml of vinegar and lemon juice!!

Delicious mixture

Really good

Soooo good! I put lemon cream cheese frosting on top and made them even better! Will definitely use again.

Made these so many times now with my 4 year old this recipe is quick an easy and delicious, sometimes I add Cadbury milk chocolate on the top after I pull the muffins out an let it melt that really gives these muffin that extra sweet yummy taste.

Great recipe, muffins are light, a never fail recipe.

Made these with my 4 year old son. He absolutely loved them and we both loved how easy the recipe was! Will definitely be making them again.

Great muffins overall. Cooked amazingly. The only thing was I had chunks of banana in the muffin (that was my mistake of not doing a good job of mashing) apart from that, these are some of the yummiest banana muffins I have tasted and 9.5/10 recommend.

This is my favorite muffin recipe. Never fails, always delicious. I like to add sultanas for a bit of variety.


I make this recipe all the time. My grandchildren love them. They are so quick and easy to make and always turn out great.

It was easy to make and quick to cook and I had to make them an hour before my child's party.
PS they were so yum.

I love banana muffins. They are just nice for a family meeting.
Thanks for this nice recipe.

Easy to make, I made it with the assistance of my 3 year old. It was fun and he loved the cupcakes. I used wholemeal flour and brown sugar, nice outcome.

Yes. Pie is for us! So happy about it.

How many did it make?\
Chelsea Sugar:
This recipe bakes 12 - 15 muffins.

I made this recipe with my aunty during lockdown and they were yum. Now going to make again today. Thank you for the recipe.

Amazing recipe. I use it like all the time.

Such a quick and easy recipe! Less complicated than traditional banana cake. They turned out light, fluffy and moist with browned tops.

These muffins are delicious!! Easy recipe and moist. I have made them three times now and perfect every time.

So easy and beautiful every time!! I add choc button on top, no fail it.

This banana muffin recipe is the greatest. My muffins were the lightest I've ever made and tasted delicious.
The recipe is very easy to follow and I can highly recommend it.
Perfect for children to make during "Lockdown".

I love this recipe use this one every time, so quick and easy for a batch of muffins topped with chocolate icing sometimes I add walnuts or white chocolate buttons really naughty but so yummy thanks for sharing this recipe.

Great recipe, I doubled it to use up all my leftover bananas and replaced the butter with sunflower oil. Also chucked in some dark chocolate chips. Worked perfectly.

This recipe is amazing! It's a good way to get your kids to start baking!.

This recipe is incredible! It is very easy to make and the taste of the muffins is amazing! I rate this 10 out of 10! I recommend this to anyone wanting to make banana muffins!

Love this recipe, so easy to follow and they came out perfectly. I have to make some more now.

This is a perfect way to get your kids to start baking.

So quick and easy to make, with a delicious banana flavour and perfect texture. This recipe is a keeper!

Perfect to get started into baking in this lock-down, thank you Chelsea.

I have used a few different banana muffin recipes in the past but this one would have to be the best one yet. So quick & easy to make too :-)

My favourite go-to banana muffin recipe for GF ...can substitute feijoas at this time of year, and yes, 1/2 cup sugar more than enough.

Awesome, easy to follow recipe that creates delicious muffins!

So lovely... My picky 5 year old loved it and without any complain finished two of them quickly... She has never done that.. even with store bought .. adjusted the sugar to 1/2 cup... Still very sweet.

Made these but I forgot the egg and I used oil instead of butter they turned out ok but next time try to remember the egg and put slightly less sugar because the bananas have a lot of natural sweetness.

Comes out perfectly every time. I always add something extra like choc chip or overripe stone fruit and it still comes out moist. I adjust the sugar accordingly.

I made some last week loved them so am making some more thanks

image description

Yum! First time to make and turned out really well. Only had 2 bananas and like some others I reduced the sugar down to 1/2 cup. Still good. Had the natural sweetness of the banana without being caky sweet. I froze them to keep fresh for lunches. Still as good. Will definitely make again. I usually make a banana cake creaming butter and sugar but these were so easy!


Excellent recipe. I tried twice.

Beautiful and so easy to make. I added 1/2 a cup of blueberries and swapped out 1/4 cup of plain flour for wholemeal and they were absolutely delicious.


Love this recipe! So easy and very delicious :)

These banana muffins were AMAZING. I'm eleven, and this is the easiest, best recipe I have tried so far. Personally, I added a cup of chocolate chips. The top also got nice and crisp. I recommend this recipe for all ages, as a great and easy activity.

Simple to make and absolutely delicious. I was short a qtr cup of plain flour so topped up with wholemeal flour. FAB

When I made these for the first time my family LOVED them it's so quick and easy to make

Easy to make, quick to bake, comes out perfect every time. My family loves this recipe.

One of the best Banana Recipes out there. Super easy to make. My kids loved them.

One of the best Banana Recipes out there. Super easy to make. My kids loved them.

Easy to prepare, very tasty but next time I'll use less sugar - then it'll be perfect.

Excellent easy recipe that hasn’t failed me ( and I’m not much of a baker so that’s saying something). I’ve just cooked it again with some peach added and it was delicious. Thank you for sharing

this recipe was so great and easy to make!, I put some white chocolate drops in with the mixture as well and it tasted amazing! :)

I was really skeptical about this one but it turned out great. The cake batter was really thick even after adding an extra egg but wow that muffin was so sensational.

image description

Easy to make. Perfect muffin.

Yummy. So recommend this recipe. Very easy and soooo light.

Turned out great I used a smaller amount of sugar, didn't want it too sweet for my young kids.


I use this recipe all the time and everyone just loves these muffins - so easy to make and quick - I add a lemon cream cheese icing - a big hit!

Very yummy and very easy to make.

Fantastic simple and tasty!

Why doesn’t this have milk?
CHELSEA: the banana, egg and melted butter provide the moisture.


Fab muffins....lovely and moist. .easy to make..making another batch...would definitely recommend. ..

Really good, really easy, really delicious.
Was able to make them in less than 30 minutes.
Highly recommended.

Really great treat, I added approx 2tsp of cinnamon to the mixture, really nice touch! Super great will definitely make them again!! :) :)

Perfect texture!!!

They are super delicious! Highly recommended!

I made a batch there nice with whipped cream and a hot cup of tea.

First time using a gas oven and done to see if the oven works. According to the muffins which tasted yum it worked.

Never fail Banana Muffin recipe, I also add a small pottle of any yoghurt, keeps them fresh for longer.

Best banana cupcake recipe ever. Pop a piece of dark chocolate in the centre to melt - highly recommended.

Perfect recipe to use up bananas. Everyone loved 'em, also it's a quick easy recipe. Highly recommended.

Amazing recipe. The best muffins ever. Family loves them. I add a dash of vanilla essence, chia seeds and some choco chips.

I Love this recipe, so easy to make and muffins turn up beautiful and moist :-)
Ps. I only used 1/2 cup of sugar and its still lovely and enough sweetness.

They are super delicious and easy to make, would 100% recommend!!!

Quick and easy to make and everyone loves them!

So easy to make and everybody loved them from children to adults yummy!

super easy quick and ymmy made a batch at 4am ready for work later 2ngt but a couple for brekky now

This recipe is amazing. I have started baking these past two years and my baking always seems to fail, these muffins though turned out perfectly. Highly recommended!

Great go-to recipe, perfect every time. I make mini muffins and freeze them for lunchboxes, always good :)

Every easy to make .. I added choc chips to it Just near end of combining all ingredients ..

Awesome easy tasty muffins!!!

Deeeeelicious! OMG so good!

Best moist muffins ever. Basic recipe to customize if wanted (add walnuts, oats or cinnamon), however it is just perfect and does not need any modifications.

Really really good and so easy to make

I added a good handful of cranberries and sliced almonds. I left out the sugar from the mix and sprinkled a tiny amount of sugar over each muffin prior to baking. Absolutely delish.

Good muffins and very easy.

Amazing thank you

Brilliant recipe, perfect fluffy yummy muffins every time. Super easy recipe!
I've been experimenting a little by adding, chia seeds and reducing the sugar down to 1/3 cup. They still come out sweet and my daughter loves them. Excellent for freezing too.
I have also starting making them with spelt flour and they come out just as yummy.

First time making them and they were sooooo good!!!

Great way to use up over-ripe bananas!
Perfect every time!

This recipe is fool-proof. I only mucked it up once when I forgot to add the baking soda and baking powder... worst mistake, will never do again. I got so frustrated with myself because I knew how amazing these muffins taste when baked properly, so it was such a disappointment. But I love these muffins! They are the best, they're nice and crispy on the outside and moist in the inside. You can make this recipe with 2 bananas (I find it's a better ratio - although I have made it with one and they still turned out great) I also love to add chocolate chips for a treat!

Easy. Everyone loved them. Only had 2 bananas but worked fine. Brilliant recipe - had requests to make twice as many next time

Super super super super super super super super

Great recipe, I added walnuts, we all loved them & were gone too quickly

Perfect 28 minutes to bake

Seriously the best, this recipe makes it into my weekly baking religiously.

Made these this eve and omitted the butter and replaced with 1/3 cup of canola oil as butter is so expensive atm. I then topped with the chocolate icing recipe for the other banana muffin recipe. Muffins are so so moist and full of flavour! Couldn't have turned out better.

Really easy to make. Taste great too.

Really nice can't beat it

Yeah pretty hard to screw these up nice simple recipe adding chocolate and coconut is good.

So good! Followed recipe exactly but used less sugar and they were still quite sweet enough. Will definitely have them on my repeat list Even size and lovely consistency....

image description

They don't need to be ripe!!
you can freeze banana's Brown and then defrost them when ready to use.

My grandson is dairy free and i made these for him replacing the butter with 1/3 cup rice bran oil. I sprinkled raw sugar and cinnamon over the top before baking them. They were absolutely delicious and disappeared so fast. Next time I'll double the recipe!

The family loved them

Very tasty!! I make batches of these all the time and freeze them in plastic ziploc bags. They are so moist, springy and the best banana muffin recipe I've ever tried.

Love the recipes

Delicious muffins, easy to make. Family loved them.

Yum banana muffins, especially if sprinkled with brown sugar and cinnamon before cooking and add a little cinnamon to the dry ingredients!

Such a great banana muffin recipe. I only use 1/3 of a cup of sugar as bananas are already quite sweet and they are delicious.

Extremely lovely and easy to make muffins I have ever tried ! No fussy ingredients and instructions ....anyone can bake ! Thank you Chelsea !

So easy to make and absolutely delicious!

Turn out yummy every time

Lovely, moist, golden muffins! Don't think that just because it's a simple recipe it's not all that special -- these are PERFECT.
Replaced the white sugar with exactly the same amount of brown sugar (I like the caramelly flavour alongside the banana).

I just ADORE this recipe!

It is quick and easy. You can have with or without icing.

Gives a true good sized dozen muffins

These muffins are quick and easy - and light and delicious. I added one teaspoon of cinnamon and baked them for 15 minutes in patty papers in a muffin tray. I'd suggest being careful not to overcook them or they could become dry. They would be great for school lunches.
