Leftover Bananas – Muffin Recipe

I hate mushy bananas. I actually don’t really love bananas ever.. which is why I always end up with overripe bananas sitting on my counter.

If you’re in the same boat, I definitely recommend trying this recipe out! Disclaimers: (1) I didn’t have a muffin pan so this is actually more like a crumbly bread and (2) It isn’t exactly the healthiest muffin recipe but it isn’t overly sweet either.. sorry but moderation is key. Plus I ran 20 miles so why not.

Banana Cinnamon Muffin/Bread Thing Recipe


  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 bananas

Cinnamon topping ingredients

  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mash all 3 bananas, leave on the side for now.
  3. Mix together the dry ingredients (do not include the ingredients for the cinnamon topping) in a large bowl – flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  4. Beat the sugar and butter together in a separate bowl. Add in the egg and vanilla, whisk together. Then mix in the mashed bananas.
  5. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together and scoop into muffin cups or a square baking pan (if you’re like me).
  6. Moving on to the cinnamon topping. Combine flour, sugar and cinnamon. Mix in softened butter – the mix will become crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over the batter.
  7. Bake! (20 ish minutes for muffins, 45-60 minutes for bread)

*I recommend going with muffins over bread for this recipe.. next time!
