Cinnamon Banana Bread Muffins

Cinnamon banana bread muffins taste like banana bread in muffin form! They are perfectly light and moist, loaded with banana flavor, and bake up beautifully each time. Topped in butter and a sweet cinnamon crumble for the ultimate snack. All you need is one bowl and no mixer needed!

I am not sure why but every time, literally every single time, I go to the grocery store I buy a bunch of bananas. I guess I just assume that we need them or I just over estimate the amount of bananas that have been eaten in the house. Regardless, my little “problem” allows me the chance to try out different banana recipes with the 18 bunches of ripe bananas on the counter ๐Ÿ™‚ Life could be worse, right?!?

Quick bread recipes like banana bread are hit & miss for me. They either bake up perfectly with a nice rounded top, or they sink horribly in the middle and they don’t cook all the way no matter how long they’ve been in the oven cooking. Same thing with muffins. It’s hard to find a really good recipe that actually bakes up pretty.

These cinnamon banana bread muffins were a nice surprise for me. They bake up nice and round and tall, they’re light but still dense with lots of banana bread flavor, and they have the best crunchy sweet topping of cinnamon and sugar.ย

I’ve already made them twice! I found my three year old in the kitchen one afternoon with 5 of these muffins sitting in front of her. They all had little nibble bites in them but only on the top. She was just eating the cinnamon sugar on top ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

With school starting up these also make for a great after school treat.

As with any banana bread recipe, the key is to use very ripe bananas. Like, so ripe your kids or husband or whoever is questioning your sanity in using such a nasty looking banana. The riper it is, the better your banana bread (or muffins in this case) will taste.ย 

Promise me you’ll make these when you have ripe bananas! Or, I could just mail you some of mine because I currently have 2 bunches of ripe bananas in my kitchen ๐Ÿ™‚ย

    September 15, 2017 at 5:13 pm wow, they sound delicious! can I use brown sugar instead of white granulated?

      September 16, 2017 at 7:02 pm They really are so yummy! Yes I think you could use brown sugar and be ok still. The two sugars do different things to baked goods so I can't say for sure how the final product would be. But it's worth a try as I think it would be just fine :)

    November 5, 2017 at 11:09 pm Hi. Loved the recipe! I was just wondering why my muffin dough was a little bit raw in some parts of the muffin, like on top and as well on the bottom. I cooked them for about 17 minutes and they were definitely cooked everywhere else. Just wondering what I did wrong. They are delicious though! will make again for sure.

      November 13, 2017 at 12:09 pm Some of my muffins turn out with that little tiny raw part at the top too. But if you let them cool completely they tend to come together. If you eat them warm right out of the oven, I noticed the muffins had a little tiny raw part that was still there. Or you could try cooking them for maybe one minute longer and see if that helps.

    November 9, 2017 at 5:42 pm I just made these this afternoon for an after-school snack for my grandchildren. They were a huge hit and everyone wanted to take some home with them. Since my grandchildren are 2, 5, and 7, that is the best review of all. As the cook, I thank you for such an easy recipe!

      January 29, 2018 at 5:03 pm It sounds like they may have just needed one to two more minutes of cook time. Mine have been a bit raw a few times when I've made them, but it's usually because I pulled them out a little bit too early.

    February 1, 2018 at 1:28 pm hello! i made your easy-peasy recipe the other day and i heard they were delicious! thank you for posting this recipe. i have a quick question: what can i use a substitute for the eggs that's NOT applesauce? my niece would love these but she has an egg allergy. i think she can have baked goods but i'd rather avoid it for her safety. thanks for any suggestions you may be able to provide!

      February 4, 2018 at 7:32 pm I honestly have no idea. I don't have any egg allergies that I deal with so I would hate to suggest something when I have no clue. I know of another blogger that uses ground flax seed instead of egg. Maybe you could find ground flax seed on amazon?? Not sure. I googled it and this is what it said : "Egg Substitutes for Binding: โ€œFlax eggโ€ โ€“ Mix 1 Tablespoon ground flax seed with 3 Tablespoons hot water. Set aside for a few minutes until the mixture thickens." I hope that helps. Good luck.

    March 10, 2018 at 12:30 pm I made most of them as regular size muffins with the topping and some of them as mini muffins with chocolate chips for the kids. I found both to be dry and way too sweet. This was not a hit at our house.

    March 11, 2018 at 8:32 pm I've been baking for 40 yrs. Just wanted to let you know that the little bits of raw muffin is actually bits of mashed banana that didn't get fully mixed in with the rest but it's okay. It happens. They're not really under baked. I think that is what makes them moist and delicious! I love them! Thanks for sharing!

      April 5, 2018 at 8:12 pm It should be fixed now. Someone reported all my pins as spam on Pinterest which then caused pinterest to block them all. I sorted it out and it should work :)

    April 8, 2018 at 11:43 am Very good. Instead of dipping in melted butter I mixed 1 part cinnamon with 6 parts touribino sugar, sprinkled on each muffin then put them in the oven. My wife is not much of a sweet eatter but she liked this one. Thanks.

    April 10, 2018 at 10:04 am I made these this weekend and I used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil and a little less sugar and put a bit of almond milk in it and they turned out so good! Thank you for sharing your recipe!

    April 17, 2018 at 8:49 pm Just made these today and I LOVED them! Only changes I made were with the flour (used whole wheat,) and I added raisins...because I just love raisins. Thanks for a great fast and easy recipe!

    April 19, 2018 at 10:53 pm I have made these muffins several times. I married a man whose mom cooks everything from scratch. It was very hard at first to adjust to that. It's been 8 years, so I am over it now! However, he told me after I made these that they were better then his mom's! Now, I know that might not be the whole truth, but he ate all of them before I could even try one! haha. Thank you so sharing. I have also made them with sesame seed oil, and grape seed oil with out any problems!
