3 items
  • Banana Crunch Muffins

    3 cups all-purpose flour
    2 cups sugar
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 pound unsalted butter, melted and cooled
    2 extra-large eggs
    3/4 cup whole milk
    2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 bananas)
    1 cup medium-diced ripe bananas (1 banana)
    1 cup small-diced walnuts
    1 cup granola
    1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
    Dried banana chips, granola, or shredded coconut, optional
    Preheat the oven to 180c gas 5

    Line 18 large muffin cups with paper liners. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Add the melted butter and blend. Combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, and mashed bananas, and add them to the flour-and-butter mixture. Scrape the bowl and blend well. Don't overmix.
    Fold the diced bananas, walnuts, granola, and coconut into the batter. Spoon the batter into the paper liners, filling each 1 to the top. Top each muffin with dried banana chips, granola, or coconut, if desired. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the tops are brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool slightly, remove from the pan, and serve.
