Homemade Bran and Banana Muffins Recipe

I absolutely love bananas...they happen to be one of my favorite fruits and they are so versatile to use in various recipes from banana cookies, cakes, pies, bread and muffins...not to mention, various desserts!

I love this banana and bran muffins recipe because its easy to prepare and they are super moist...not to mention...good for you too! If you are allergic to nuts, you can substitute with chocolate chips.

This recipe will make 10 to 12 servings.

Bran and Banana Muffins Recipe

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup of oat bran
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (remove any bruised areas)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg

In a large mixing bowl, combine together the all-purpose flour, oat bran, baking soda, table salt and pecans. In another large sized bowl, beat together the mashed bananas with the softened butter. Stir in the brown sugar and large egg. Slowly pour bowl #1 into bowl #2 and stir until all of the ingredients are blended together.

Spoon your batter into lightly greased muffin cups, filling them a little bit over the 1/2 way mark. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 18 to 22 minutes or until done. Let muffins cool for 8 muffins before removing from the pan and then serve them warm with a pat of butter.

If you have any leftovers, store in an airtight container.
