Nanner Muffins

I’ve been making nanner (banana) muffins for many years. I’ve tried a lot of recipes, mostly by scouring the internet recipe websites. They’ve always been good, but they’ve never been where I truly wanted them to be. So I’ve spent the last several attempts perfecting my own recipe.

Here’s my version of nanner muffins for you to enjoy. They aren’t overly sweet, but they are a nice middle ground between fluffy and moist. The granulated sugar top brings the sweetness precisely to the right level (for me). Just add some butter and… oh my!


  • 3 bananas, very ripe
  • 0.25 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 0.25 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 0.5 cup agave nectar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 0.25 tsp nutmeg
  • 0.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 0.5 tsp cloves


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a muffin tin.
  • In a large bowl, mash the nanners. Whisk in the remaining wet ingredients until combined.
  • Pile the dry ingredients on top of the wet ingredients, then use a rubber spatula to stir all ingredients together.
  • Pour about 0.25 to 0.33 cup of batter into each cup. Sprinkle top with coarse granulated sugar, if desired.
  • Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes, then remove from baking tin.
  • Enjoy!
