Banana Zucchini Bread Muffins

Rated as 4.56 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe is from my mother-in-law and it's the only way to get my husband to eat bananas and my kids to eat zucchini. I make them into muffins because they get eaten faster than the bread. But it's great either way."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 36 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. Mix bananas, white sugar, zucchini, applesauce, eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a sifter and sift into the banana mixture; add oats and mix until batter is just combined. Fill muffin cups with batter.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool muffins completely in the tin before removing.


  • Cook's Note:
  • This recipe can also be made into 2 loaves. Bake for 40 minutes, turn off oven, and let bread sit in the oven for 15 minutes more.

These are okay- but a little dry as written. I baked exactly as the recipe calls for, actually making the muffins a little bigger (so they should have taken longer to bake) but the 20 minute ma...

DH and my nephew loved these muffins! I thought they were good, but wasn't sure I'd make them again. I thought they needed some nuts or crunch to offset how very moist they are. (I like my muffi...

I left out the applesauce (didn't have any, and no time to make) - I used half a cup of yogurt instead, and it seemed fine. I also didn't have trouble with it sticking to the liner ... maybe bec...

I was trying to do some of the suggested changes from previous reviews. I used 3 ripe bananas, 2 cups of zucchini, and 1/4 C carrots, 1/2 C sugar, 1/4 C sugar free maple syrup. And then I realiz...

These were super yummy!!! My HUGE suggestion, SPRAY YOUR CUPCAKE LINERS! I was sad I lost so much on the liner =( I did add a few things (not that it NEEDED it). I added craisins, chopped pecans...

I added extra cinnamon along with a few dashes of allspice, nutmeg & ground cloves. Next time I will add even more spices to 'zip' up the taste. I realized at the last minute that I had no oat...
