The way the coffee works together with the banana and chocolate chips is almost too good to be true. They’re actually so good that I may have accidentally eaten almost all of them in one day and skipped any other meals. Oops.

This banana muffin recipe is a simple, no fuss 1 bowl wonder. It requires only simple ingredients that most of us already have waiting in our kitchen. And if you’re like me, you always have bananas in desperate need of use.

What’s great about these 1 bowl easy banana muffins:

  • easy and quick to make – even a 4 year old could make these
  • A crowdpleaser
  • freezer friendly
  • and did I mention they are mouthwateringly addictive

Gluten free banana muffins

If you’re looking for a gluten free banana muffin version, you can still follow this recipe. You just need to substitute the all-purpose flour with your favorite gluten free flour.

The crunchy topping

For my crunchy topping, I like to use my favorite homemade crunchy oatmeal breakfast cereal made with maple syrup and chocolate chips. Using breakfast cereal adds extra crunch and takes the recipe to another level. However, you can easily leave out the crunchy topping if you prefer.
I’ve also used storebought oatmeal crunch with chocolate chips and it turned out just as good. So there’s no rules and you’re free to use any topping you prefer.

What does it take to make these mouthwatering, decadent and completely delicious 1 bowl easy banana muffins

First of, you need a few easy ingredients. Very ripe bananas or even overripe bananas work the best in this recipe. They not only add extra depth and natural sweetness, but also gives the muffins a hint of caramel flavors. Yum.
Next, you need all-purpose flour (or your preferred gluten free flour if you need it).

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375F and line a muffin pan with muffin liners. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mash the very ripe bananas with a fork. Add the sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt and mix together to combine.
  • Next, pour the instant coffee into a small glass and pour 1 tablespoon boiling water over it. Stir together until the dry coffee has dissolved and pour the coffee mixture into the bananas. Mix together to combine and allow to cool for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the eggs and beat them together with the banana mixture. Next, add a pinch of salt along with the flour and mix until everything is combined.
  • Finally, add a teaspoon of baking powder and the chocolate chips and gently mix together until combined. Pour the muffin dough into the prepared muffins liners.
  • Top the muffins with your favorite Oatmeal Crunch Breakfast Cereal and bake the muffins for 12-15 minutes or until they are done (use a toothpick to test if they are done)
  • When the muffins are done, remove from the oven and leave to cool before eating. Enjoy.
