Banana Bread – Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup walnuts chopped

Banana Bread – Wet Ingredients

  • 2 large bananas mashed
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter melted


  • 2 tbs all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbs unsalted butter melted


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.  Lightly grease muffin tin or line with muffin liners.
  • In a large bowl, mix all banana bread dry ingredients (except walnuts).  In another bowl, mix all banana bread wet ingredients together.    
  • Slowly mix wet ingredient mixture into dry ingredient mixture until well combined.  Add walnuts in mixture.
  • Add batter to muffin tins until 3/4 full  as the batter will rise while it is cooking.  I find that a cookie scoop works well for this since the batter is on the thick and sticky side.
  • In a different bowl mix all topping ingredients together and sprinkle on top of the muffins.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes.  You will know when the muffins are done when you can insert a toothpick in the center of one and it will come out clean.  Enjoy!


  • For a banana bread loaf, add batter into a lightly greased loaf pan and cook for 45-50 minutes at 375°F.  This recipe will make 1 loaf.
  • For a banana bread mini muffins, add batter into a lightly greased mini muffin  pan or add muffin liners and cook for 12-14 minutes at 375°F.  This recipe will make 24 mini muffins.
  • All purpose flour can be used instead of whole wheat flour.  I think the whole wheat flour adds a heartier flavor that compliments the banana but this recipe is still delicious without it.
