My family loves bananas. But, no matter, there are still a few left over that brown too quickly. What is the best thing to do with brown, overly ripe bananas? Banana apple muffins, of course!

The thing I love the most about this recipe is that you don’t need to use your mixer – at all. You will still need your food processor for chopping your apples. But, if you prefer a more ‘chunky’ muffin you can always dice the apples by hand and keep your appliances in the cabinet.

This recipe takes only 15 – 20 minutes to prepare – including set up. It’s super fast, extremely easy and the results are amazing!

You are going to be amazed at how moist these banana apple muffins are.

Normally I like to eat one muffin fresh out of the oven. But, these were so soft and chewy that I had to wait for them too cool a bit. It was definitely worth it. If you use a food processor to fine chop your apples then they just melt into the muffin.

You can also use a bakeable artificial sweetener, such as Splenda, to reduce the sugar content.

    I followed the recipe to a “T”. I grated the apples, though. I doubled the recipe and ended up with 12 muffins and two loaves of some seriously delicious moist yummy goodness! Thank you! My bananas were really over ripe, and my apples were one step away from being trashed. What a tasty way to clean the fruit bowl!

  36. Polly

    October 29, 2012 at 11:32 am

    These are delicious. I used a little less sugar and butter, and added a crumb topping (brown sugar, flour and butter) and they were just awesome.

    I made them with fat free plain yogurt instead of butter for a fat free muffin and they are spectacular. Thanks for the recipe – it’s a keeper!

    I’m making these right now, but it doesn’t say when to put the cinnamon in. I put it in with the flour.

  41. Paulette

    March 1, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    Yum, I put half the amount of sugar in and replaced the butter for oil and they taste great, I might cut even more sugar out next time.

  42. Minol Shamreen

    June 3, 2013 at 11:23 pm

    These sure are ” melt in your mouth ” . They turned out great !
    The only prob was that they stuck really bad on to the liners…any tips ?

    These muffins were delicious… SUPER moist (tasted better when left out to cool than when eaten right out of the oven) and yummy :D This recipe is a definite “Keeper.”

  44. Paola

    July 20, 2013 at 7:02 pm

    I made them, and they are delicious. I used 1/2 cup if brown sugar and 1/2 regular sugar. Only thing is… Following the instructions, there’s no mention of the cinnamon (it’s on the ingredients’ list.) I only realized it was missing when I was ready to put them in the oven. So I sprinkled some sugar/cinnamon on top.

  45. amanda

    August 28, 2013 at 12:59 am

    I followed this recipe EXACTLY and it turned out bad. This recipe sucks!

    Has anyone tried adding oatmeal to these?

  47. Natalie

    October 27, 2013 at 5:53 am

    i made this recipe as stated first time round and found it beautifully moist, but a little too sweet for my liking.
    Next time round I omitted the apple, added a cup of oats, some walnuts, frozen mixed berries and halved the sugar – theyre still moist and delicious.
    thanks for the recipe

  48. Meagan L

    October 31, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    I made these this morning with some bananas I had frozen a while back. Awesome recipe! I chopped my apples by hand so they were chunky in the muffins. I also added a little extra cinnamon, some All-spice and Hazelnut cream. Yummmmy! Even the batter tasted good :-) And they smell amazingggg. Easy enough to whip up in a dorm room.
    4 stars because they’re a bit too sweet. I’d cut back on the sugar maybe by half. Or substitute with applesauce or honey perhaps?
