Pro Tips For Super Soft Banana Muffins

There are 2 key points to get super soft banana muffins:

  • First, use very ripe bananas.

The unripe bananas will be difficult to crush and will not integrate well into the batter.

  • Secondly, do not overcook.

Try inserting a stick in the center after 20 minutes and continue to cook only if you see a wet batter on the stick.

The minute the stick is dry, your muffins are ready!

If You Don’t Love Cashews, Below Are Some Delicious Alternatives

This recipe works with other foods too!

For example, instead of cashews you could add 3/4 of a cup of coconut flakes, or 1 and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.

I have tried both of these alternatives, and they tasted equally good.

How to Preserve Muffins

Store the banana muffins for 1-2 days at most inside an airtight container. Once baked and cooled you can freeze them if you want.

These muffins are honestly one of my favorites.

It took a lot of trial and error to make the recipe simply perfect, but these are finally the softest and tastiest banana muffins I have ever tasted.

I hope you love them as much as I do!
