The easiest way to use up those extra ripe bananas!  Use a box of cake mix and some bananas to make banana muffins.  You’ll be impressed by how easy and how delicious and moist these are!



1  box yellow cake mix

3 large bananas (or 34 small bananas)

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Turn oven on to temperature recommended for muffins on the cake mix box (often 350)

Mash bananas

Add cake mix.  Do not add ingredients listed on the box!

Add optional cinnamon

Stir until everything is well mixed.

Bake for approx. 18 minutes.  Test for doneness with a toothpick


The dough will be sticky and muffins will be lighter than traditional banana bread.  Different but delicious!
