Banana Bread Muffins

It is now a tradition (weird tradition) to have tons of bananas in my house, my brother used to eat like 3 of them everyday and now he decided to eat other fruits, while the kitchen was full of bananas I could only think of banana cake but I've made it before, therefore and with my new muffin liners I decided to make banana bread muffins, it's a delicious classic that my dad loves to devour

- 1 2/3 c. of flour
- 1 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
- 110 gr. of unsalted butter, softened
- 2 ripe bananas
- 4 tablespoons of sour cream
- 1/2 c. of brown sugar
- 2/3 c. of chopped pecans
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla

1. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and chopped pecans. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, add eggs one at a time. In a small bowl mash bananas and combine them with sour cream and vanilla. Combine all mixtures.

2. Prepare a muffin pan with muffin liners and preheat the oven at 360°F, fill them with the batter up to 3/4.

It was actually a bit hard to fill these muffin liners
3. Bake them for 15 minutes or until completely risen and slightly brown.

I could barely took the final product pictures and I wanted to add some frosting on top but everybody was hungry and they ate them just like that but I can proudly say that they loved them and there are no muffins left.


  1. Those muffin liners are so festive! Love this delicious idea of bread muffins :)

  2. Love the look of those liners. I just bought some bananas today and I also have sour cream in my fridge...might just be getting up to make these tomorrow morning!

  3. I am a fan of banana-inspired recipes. I understand the panic when you have a bunch of bananas that are turning darker and darker in color everyday. This is a nice recipe to serve for breakfast or snacks. Thanks!

  4. they look delicious.xx


  5. Love your presentation of these muffins. Banana bread muffins are one of my favourites.

  6. I have a friend who HATES bananas. I don't know why. Something about it being soft and dry and mushy or something. I, on the other hand, adore them--I always get a bunch when I'm grocery shopping. One of the best things about them is that they're so versatile! Raw-eating, smoothie-adding, baking! Your muffins look superb, especially in those liners ;]

  7. The muffin liners are so refreshing. I love the look of square papers. The banana muffins look yummy too. I actually love bananas, but I don't like to eat them when they're ripe, so every other week, I'm making banana bread.

  8. Yum! Love those red wrappers. I make banana muffins a lot. There always seem to be 3 that are too ripe toeat, so into the freezer tosave for muffins.
    Your chorizo bread looks good too!

  9. Tan ricos que se terminaron muy pronto!

  10. Simply gorgeous looking banana bread and that muffin liners you have used are of great selection. We will drool over anything made with bananas and this is another one of it.

  11. These are beautiful muffins all dressed in their fancy outfits! I can imagine your house was smelling quite delicious as they baked - no wonder they could hardly wait to eat them, I bet even your camera must have been drooling a bit! :)
