Banana Muffins and Banana Bread are a great way to use up bananas that are turning brown. In fact, they're BETTER when they're brown if you're putting them into your bread! Here is my no-fail recipe below.

Banana Muffins

300 g. self-raising flour (2 cups)
15 g. baking powder (3 teaspoons)
4 g. salt (½ teaspoon)
220 g. granulated sugar (1 cup)
115 mls. vegetable oil (½ cup)
2 large eggs
400 g. mashed bananas (about 4 medium bananas) (1 ½ cups)
100 g. chopped nuts (optional) (1 cup)
(coconut & vanilla extract/powder are also good in this)

Method:

Preheat oven to 160°C. Prepare an 18-muffin tin by greasing each well or by placing a paper baking up into each. Alternatively, use 2 bread pans.

Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

Mix together sugar and oil in a large mixing bowl. Beat in eggs. Stir in mashed bananas.

Add dry ingredients all at once to egg mixture stirring just enough to moisten. Mix in chopped nuts, coconut or vanilla (optional). Spoon batter into prepared muffin tins, filling two-thirds full.

Bake muffins for 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven; cool on wire rack.

If baking loaves of bread instead of muffins, fill two pans equally, then bake for 40 minutes.
