Recipe instructions Pumpkin Banana Muffins

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C). Prepare a standard muffin pan with liners and put it to the side for later use. This recipe makes 16 muffins, so you can either use a second muffin pan to make 4 more, or wait until the first batch is done baking to use the same pan.

  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon/ pumpkin pie spice, sugar, and salt) and then set aside.

  3. Step 3

    In another bowl, mix together the liquid ingredients (mashed bananas, oil, vanilla extract, eggs, and pumpkin purée) until fully combined.

  4. Step 4

    Make a hole in the middle of the dry ingredients. Then pour the liquid mix in and fold together with a spatula until fully mixed and no clumps remain, except mashed banana chunks.

  5. Step 5

    Scoop the batter into a lined muffin pan, filling about 2/3 of the way.

  6. Step 6

    Bake at 400 degrees F (204 degrees C) for 5 minutes, then lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and bake for another 12 minutes.

  7. Step 7

    Insert a toothpick into the middle of the muffin. If it comes out clean, take out of the oven, let it cool for 10 minutes, and then carefully transfer the muffins to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
