  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 3 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease the muffin cups.

  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
