Easy Super Moist Banana Apple Muffins are delicious, moist, perfect day or night and better yet, a great way to use up ripe fruit! Looking for a fast, easy, delicious addition to breakfast or snack time? You’re going to fall in love with these Easy Super Moist Muffins.


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!

Other great ways to use up fruit that is a getting a little ripe is in recipes like these tasty Zucchini Banana Muffins or our Lemon Strawberry Muffins.

This easy and yummy apple and banana muffin recipe is very easy to put together!

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.

Here are a few tips before you start making the muffins:

Do you have to use a food processor to dice up the apples?

No, not at all.  Just peel them and diced them with a knife.  That is how I prepared our muffins.

Can you use applesauce in lieu of apples?

You can, however, you may want to add a bit more flour if the recipe is too runny.

Could you add walnuts to the recipe?

Sure, you could definitely do that.

How can you make these Apple Banana Muffins more healthy?

Instead of the sugar, you could use a bakeable artificial sweetener.

  • Slowly incorporate the flour into the mixture and stir until blended

I like to sprinkle them with a little bit of powdered sugar, but you can also coat them with apple butter for breakfast or drizzle caramel for more of a dessert muffin.

  1. Oh my, these look delicious! I hope I can find some red-taped bananas at the store, so I don’t have to wait for them to get ripe.

  2. Best part about this? I’ve got ALL the ingredients already in the kitchen. Might just have to make it up this week! Looks SUPER tasty! :)

  3. I make a banana apple nut bread and replace the sugar with greek yogurt and the oil with unsweetened applesauce. I love the flavor combination.

  4. 4 stars
    These look so good.
    And a great thing to do with bananas that are just too ripe for me to eat – I’m really picky with my bananas.
    Thanks for sharing. =)

  5. They look delicious. I usually make Banana Bread, but I think next time I’ll try these muffins :)

  6. I have two bananas over staying their welcome in my kitchen. I stumbled upon this recipe and I actually have all the ingredients on hand! What better way to kick off our first week of kindergarten than some homemade muffins :-) Thanks

    These muffins look delicious and I love the idea of using Splenda to reduce the sugar content. I’m going to put this recipe on my ‘to make’ list :) Thanks for sharing!

    I’ll bet this one is fabulous. I make an apple cake and it is just the most moist cake ever. I’ll have to try this one. Thanks for sharing!

    Oh these look really good! I was looking for some apple recipes as we were going to the Apple Orchard to get apples this weekend! I think I will give this a try! Doesnt look too hard! :)

  10. 5 stars
    These were wonderful! I also added nutmeg and walnuts and substituted 1/2 the four with whole wheat flour. Perfect for fall!

  11. 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!

  12. 5 stars
    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.

  13. 5 stars
    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.

  15. 5 stars
    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.

  16. 5 stars
    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 ?
    – Minty

    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.”

    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.

    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

    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?

  21. My first time making muffins from scratch. They turned out great. I did take them out after 20 minutes though, and think maybe even a few minutes less would be ok. I added blueberries to some of them, and as noted above, no mention of the cinnamon in the instructions. But for someone like me who finds baking a mystery, I loved the easy recipe. Thank you!

    1. I’m so glad that you enjoyed them! I’m sure the blueberry ones would be amazing! I need to make some with cinnamon. That would also be a yummy addition.

  22. May I check if no milk is required for this recipe? I’ve tried making it yesterday and it turns out that the muffin is a bit too dry as the batter is not enough to cover the chopped apples. Please help. I follow the recipe exactly except only use 1/4 sugar

    1. Hi there. I don’t believe milk is used with this recipe. One of our contributors initially created the recipe and this is her recipe. However, I will remake them to make sure and reply back to let you know. No one has mentioned it before; however, they may have overlooked it. I’ll keep you updated.

    1. Yes, you should be fine with making them in a mini muffin pan. As far as the time, start checking at 15 minutes since they are smaller. I would also keep them at 350. I haven’t tried them in a mini pan yet, however, that is a great idea. I will definitely test that on my end and add to the instructions.

    These are super easy and taste delicious. I made it like the recipe and added walnuts. This is my new favorite go to muffin!

    1. Oooo I love the idea of adding walnuts! Thanks for checking out the recipe and kind words! I’m glad you enjoyed them.
