Banana Muffin Recipe

"An incredibly soft, moist banana muffin recipe made with kitchen and pantry staples. A kid-friendly recipe that makes a great afternoon snack idea. Although good on its own, you can jazz up this dish. You can substitute brown sugar with the same amount of coconut sugar or granulated sugar. Liquid sweeteners aren’t great for this recipe though. A great tip to prevent the top and sides from getting too brown in the baking process is to loosely cover the bread with aluminum foil after 30 minutes. When you take the muffins out of the oven, insert a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean then the bread is cooked."

NotesYou can add chopped walnuts, pecans, or chocolate chips. Muffins stay fresh covered at room temperature for a few days or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
