There is nothing quite like waking up before the kiddos, cleaning the house, all while a good batch of banana bread is in the oven.
I love this recipe because adding sugar is completely optional, and taste amazing either way.
If you would like this recipe to have a sweetness to it, and not use sugar, I encourage you to use 1/3 cup of honey or sweetener of choice!
Let’s dive into the recipe!
The Best Banana Bread Muffin Recipe
makes 12 medium size muffins
1 large carrot, or 2 small carrots
1 cup white or brown sugar
(this is 100% optional, and it turns out and taste great either way! I personally will use 1/3 cup of honey if I desire it to be sweeter.)
3 large mashed bananas
1/4 cup (melted) between the following choices: butter, coconut oil, or margarine
1/2 tsp of salt
2 cups of flour (I use unbleached)
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tbsp cinnamon (optional! I add a lot of cinnamon to my recipes, so you are welcome to use as little as 1/4 tsp if desired!)
1 tbsp vanilla extract (optional)
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Mix together: banana, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and shredded carrot thoroughly.
Add in melted oil or butter of choice.
Add in both eggs and mix well.
Then add all dry ingredients
Bake at 350 for 1 hour for loaf or 25 minutes for muffins. Make sure you line or grease your loaf or muffin pans.
