Zoe's Notes

  • Don’t overmix the batter. Overmixing may result in a loaf is inflated, does not rise well, and may become gummy
  • All ingredients should be used at room temperature for best results.  Room temperature ingredients will make fluffier banana muffins. Cold ingredients don't incorporate as well as when they are at room temp.
  • Don’t over-bake. Just bake 18 to 20 minutes or until set through and a toothpick comes out clean. 
  • Don't open the oven door during the first half of cooking time as this can cause the temperature in the oven to be unstable and your muffins to sink.
  • Store: Muffins stay fresh covered at room temperature for a few days or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Freeze muffins for up to 3 months
