Ingredients

  • 2 bananas ripe and spotty!
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup melted butter cooled
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots I like to use a cheese grater!
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts optional (let's use!)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 and line a muffin tin with liners or spray with non-stick spray, set aside.
  • Mash bananas in a large bowl with a potato masher (may also use a fork)
  • Add in egg, vanilla and butter, mixing well.
  • Next, add the flour, sugar, soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg until well combined and uniform.
  • Fold in the shredded carrots and walnuts (if using)
  • Pour batter into prepared muffin tin (topping with extra walnuts if desired) and bake for 22-24 minutes. Muffins are done when they are golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Allow muffins to cool fully before storing in an air tight container for 5-7 days on the counter. May also freeze the muffins and keep for 2-3 months.

Notes

Bananas: Pick the ripest bananas you can find! They mash easily, and have a little boost of sweetness that works great in these banana carrot muffins.
Add ins: Feel free to get creative and add in some fun flavors to your muffins. Coconut, chocolate chips, and raisins all make good additions.
