  • Muffin pan


  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 ½ cups flour (I use EINKORN flour, but any all-purpose or white whole wheat works well)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar , lightly packed
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 450°. Grease muffin pan well.
  • To a large mixer bowl, add banana, egg, milk, and oil. Mix until very well blended.
  • In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Still until well mixed.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet mixture. Still gently, just until completely mixed.
  • Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan. (This recipe makes 6 large muffins)
  • Bake 20 minutes, until muffins are golden brown, and centers are just set.
