  • cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts or chocolate chips (optional)

  1. Use overripe bananas for the best flavor and sweetness. The darker the banana peels, the sweeter the muffins will be.
  2. Don’t overmix the batter, as it can make the muffins tough.
  3. Feel free to add other mix-ins, such as raisins, cranberries, or shredded coconut.
