Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar* packed
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 3 medium large brown bananas* mashed
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F degrees and line a muffin pan with papers.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the sugars, melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract and sour cream.
  • Stir in the mashed bananas.
  • Gently fold the flour mixture into the dry ingredients followed by the chopped walnuts. 
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin. 
  • Bake for 5 minutes at 400F degrees. Without removing the pan from the oven, turn the oven down to 375F and continue baking for 10-12 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. 

Notes

For less sweet muffins, use 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar.
3 large bananas should be about 1 1/2 cups mashed. 
Muffins are best enjoyed the same day that they're baked. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
