  • 1 Muffin tray for 12 muffins
  • 12 muffin liners
  • 1 Stand mixer or hand held mixer
  • 1 Rubber spatula


  • cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 3 bananas mashed
  • cup vegetable oil See Recipe Note
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts See Recipe Note


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Line muffin tray with muffin cups or grease well and set aside.
  • In a medium size bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients and set aside.
    1½ cups all purpose flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp ground ginger, ½ tsp salt, ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer beat together the egg with the sugars for 5 minutes at medium speed. Then, add in the oil and beat for another 2 - 3 minutes.
    ½ cup sugar, ¼ cup brown sugar, 1 egg, ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • With the mixer speed set to low, slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides and then add in the mashed bananas. Mix until well combined. Add in the chopped walnuts and mix again until just combined.
    3 bananas, 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • Divide the muffin batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups and bake in the middle rack of your oven for 25 - 30 minutes, or until done (a toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean).
  • Cool on a baking rack and enjoy!
  • Muffins will keep at room temperature, covered, for a few days and up to a week in the refrigerator. Wrapped well, they can also be frozen.


Although we use vegetable oil in this recipe, you can also use equal amounts of melted butter, melted coconut oil or even olive oil.  Each will give a slightly different flavour to your muffins.
You can choose to add 1 cup of chocolate chips to your muffins instead of the chopped walnuts, or 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.
