Tips for Success

Ripe Bananas: Ensure your bananas are nice and ripe for maximum sweetness and flavor.

Room Temperature Eggs: Using room temperature eggs helps achieve a fluffy muffin texture and gives the muffin a better rise.

Parchment Paper Liners: Line your muffin pan with parchment paper liners for easy removal and cleanup.

Blending Technique: Blend the batter until smooth and fluffy for tender crumb

Weigh the flour: It is important to have the exact amount of flour, for best results use a kitchen scale. If you are using the measuring cup method, fill the cup with flour using a spoon (DO NOT DIP THE CUP INTO THE FLOUR) and level off with a knife.

Ingredient Substitutions

Maple Syrup: If you prefer, honey or agave can be used as a substitute for maple syrup.

Olive Oil: Substitute with melted coconut oil or another neutral-flavored oil of your choice such as avocado oil.

Gluten-Free Flour Blend: I used measure for measure which includes xanthan gum. You can use your favorite blend preferably rice-based that includes xanthan gum, or add 1/2 teaspoon.

Chocolate Drizzle: For a dairy-free option, be sure to use dairy-free chocolate.

No Blender? No Problem!

If you don’t have a blender, you can still enjoy these delicious muffins. Start with mashing very ripe bananas using a fork or potato masher until smooth. Then, whisk with the wet ingredients in a mixing bowl and gradually incorporate the flour and baking powder until well combined. Then proceed with step 3 as per the recipe.

A food processor is another great alternative to a blender for making this muffin. Here’s how you can adapt the recipe to use a food processor:

Place bananas, maple syrup, olive oil, eggs, vanilla, and salt into a food processor and process until smooth and fluffy. Transfer to a bowl with flour and baking powder and mix to combine. Proceed with step 3 as per the recipe.
