Brown Sugar Banana Nut Muffins

"Boy, oh boy, these Brown Sugar Banana Nut Muffins are moist, nutty and ridiculously delicious! They're sweetened with ripe bananas and rich brown sugar, and loaded with walnuts too."


Spraying the muffin tin and papers should prevent the muffins from sticking to the pan. But if they do stick a little, run a knife around the edges and gently remove. If you're using frozen and thawed bananas, you won't need to mash them because they will come out of the peels very soft and mushy and will blend into the batter nicely. Use my toothpick tip (link in post) to make sure the muffins are done but not over-baked.

Yields12 Muffins

Preparation Time10 min

Cooking Time30 min

Cooking MethodOven

Cooking Vessel Size12 Count Muffin Tin


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 2 eggs, large
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups flour, all-purpose or unbleached
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped (reserve 1/4 cup for the tops)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with papers and spray with baking spray.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat well, about a minute.

  3. Add frozen and thawed bananas, or overripe mashed bananas, to the creamed butter, sugar, and eggs mixture, and mix until blended.

  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and blend on low, just until the flour disappears.

  5. Stir in 1 cup of the chopped nuts.

  6. Use a large (3 oz) cookie scooper to place the batter into the prepared muffin tins lined with papers. Then place a few pieces of chopped walnuts on top of each muffin.

  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes, or until the tops of the muffins are golden brown, slightly cracked and firm, but still a little soft in the center.

  8. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes, then remove the muffins from the tins and cool on a rack.
