These muffins are light and fluffy, and to achieve this texture, you should always stir till just all the ingredients are just combined. Trust me, it’s so easy to over mix the batter without even thinking about it – this will result in a dry and dense muffin. 

Note that, I used 3/4 cup of sugar in this recipe but I understand that we have different sugar caving levels. If you have a sweet tooth you can increase it and if you are the less sugar consumer, feel free to reduce the sugar to half of a cup.

  • Combine the wet ingredients
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients
  • And add wet ingredients.
  • Mix until just moistened. Don’t over mix to prevent dry muffins

Type of Banana: You will need overripe bananas for this recipe in order to get that lovely, moist texture and abundant flavor.

Mashing the Banana: A fork will do this with ease as long as the bananas are very ripe. If you like to have some chunks in the muffins, feel free to leave some bits unmashed, and if you don’t like it chunky, feel free to mash or blend till smooth.

Sugar: In this recipe, I used 3/4 cup of sugar, which is perfectly okay for me. However, you can use 1 cup if you have a sweet tooth.
