The Best Banana Bread Muffin Recipe

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

  • 2 eggs

  • 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)


  1. Mix together: banana, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and shredded carrot thoroughly.

  2. Add in melted oil or butter of choice.

  3. Add in both eggs and mix well.

  4. Then add all dry ingredients

  5. Bake at 350 for 1 hour for loaf or 25 minutes for muffins. Make sure you line or grease your loaf or muffin pans.

We swear by this recipe! I make multiple batches and freeze for easy on the go snacks, prepping for another baby in the house, or to deliver to a mama with a new baby.

This recipe is extremely easy to follow, and taste delicious! Check out all of my recipes:
