My husband went crazy for these – so so good! Next time I will definitely double. This recipe is so quick and simple.

Start with your oven preheated to 400 for the first 5 mins than reduce to 350 for the remaining 15 – (20 mins baking in total). I find this method works best for me and my oven, but I played around with temps and times many times before using this as my base.

  • 3 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar (could use all white if preferred)
  • 1 egg
  • 13 cup melted butter, cooled
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1.5 cups flour (I  used half whole wheat, half all purpose)
  • 1 cup + butterscotch chips

Start by melting the butter so it can cool.

Next, in a large bowl, mash the bananas then add the sugar and egg and mix well. Add the butter and vanilla and stir everything together.

Combine all your dry ingredients and combine until mixture is just incorprating. Over mixing will result in a tough muffin. Instead of using another bowl, I use a sieve to add all my dry ingredients. This way they all get sifted together – so easy!

Fold in as many butterscotch chips as you’d like and bake – yum yum!
