Your Ingredients: Flour, salt, baking soda and ground cinnamon. You will also need melted butter, eggs, brown sugar and vanilla. OF course, don’t forget the bananas and pecans. Because, you know, they are banana and pecan muffins. ツ

A few recipe notes:

  • You start this recipe by beating your wet ingredients with an electric mixer. But, you will gently fold the dry ingredients into the batter with a rubber/silicone spatula. Do not beat at this stage! This will help keep the batter light and your muffins fluffy.
  • Be sure not to over mix your dry ingredients. You will only fold until the flour is no longer visible. Lumps are OK.
  • I tried out parchment muffin liners for this recipe. They are bit more in price than regular muffin liners, but, I loved them! You can find the product I used in the recipe card.
