One of the best muffin recipes we’ve tried to date. If you are craving cinnamon and/or banana bread this recipe will no doubt hit the spot!

Yields12 Servings
Prep Time30 minsCook Time18 minsTotal Time48 mins

Muffin ingredients
 2 eggs
 1 large banana, ripe
 ½ cup vegetable oil
 1 tsp vanilla
  cup sugar
 ½ tsp salt
 1 tsp ground cinnamon
 1 ⅔ cups all-purpose flour
Topping ingredients
 5 tbsp butter, softened
 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  cup sugar

1

Preheat oven to 375 and take out your butter to soften

2

Line a muffin tin with paper baking cups or lightly grease with oil.

3

In a large bowl whisk 2/3 cup sugar, 1/2 cup oil, and both eggs.

4

In a separate bowl mash up banana with a fork and add in vanilla. In a small dish mix baking soda, salt and 1 tsp cinnamon.

5

Combine all muffin ingredients in large bowl and stir until batter is a moist consistency. I used a stand mixer but a handheld one or just using good old fashion elbow grease would work just fine.

6

Evenly distribute the batter in the 12-cup muffin tin and bake for 18 minutes. While the muffins are baking we will prep our ingredients for the topping.

7

Next we will need a cooling rack or plate to set the muffins on once they’re finished baking and we will need two small bowls. In the first bowl mix 2 tsp cinnamon and 1/3 cup sugar. In the second bowl add your butter and whisk. If the butter is not soft enough you can put it in the microwave for 5-10 seconds but watch it, once you see any liquid stop and whisk. You want a creamy consistency.

8

Once finished baking, place muffins on cooling rack. Next, one at a time dip a muffin top into the butter then into the cinnamon sugar mixture and back to the cooling rack to finish cooling

And that’s it! Our kido loves these muffins and I don’t blame him, they taste like a combination of cinnamon toast and banana bread, truly amazing! For storage, once cooled, place them in a gallon Ziploc or other plastic wear and keep at room temperature for up to 3 days. Enjoy guys!

    I often find myself using a tad more cinnamon than a recipe calls for, especially in quick bread recipes, so this one is right up my alley!
