strawberry banana mini muffins!

It’s been about a month since I introduced the mini muffin tin into my life, and let me tell you, our love affair is still going strong. Mini muffins are cute and take less time to bake – it’s also ok to eat a few mini muffins, where as with regular muffins, that’s not the best idea. I can’t see myself ever making a full size muffin again, but who knows, people change. If you aren’t as into mini muffins as I am, you can always make my recipes in a normal sized tin, just add about 8-10 minutes to your bake time!

Last night, I made strawberry banana muffins. I have never had a strawberry muffin before, but I had some berries that needed to be eaten up to avoid getting too ripe so I gave em a shot. They aren’t very sweet, so they make a perfect breakfast muffin. This morning, I ate 5. It’s safe to assume they’re fantastic.


What you need:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 banana, mashed (the riper the better)
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, cut into little pieces
  • 1 1/8 cup flour
  • (heaping)1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350.

Melt butter in a sauce pan and bring back to room temperature. In the meantime, put flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, cinnamon and baking soda together in a large mixing bowl and set aside. In a smaller mixing bowl, whisk together mashed banana, egg and vanilla. Add cooled butter and whisk until smooth. Fold strawberries into your dry mixture and make sure all of them are coated with flour to prevent sinking while baking. Pour your wet into the dry and mix until just combined. Fill lined mini muffin holes with batter 3/4 full and bake for 12 minutes. Allow to cool.
