This banana nut muffin recipe starts with a basic sourdough starter. They're the perfect start to your morning and great for tucking into lunch boxes. Just don't tell you're kids that they're healthy!
Add in the remaining ingredients and once all ingredients are in the bowl, gently mix until just combined.
Divide the batter between the 12 muffin cups and place in the preheated oven.
Bake 15-20 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean when inserted into the center of a muffin.
Like all muffins, this recipe hinges on not over-mixing. In particular, be careful not to overmix the liquid ingredients as sourdough starter can also toughen the muffins upon overmixing.
To make vegan banana muffins:
This recipe works equally well with butter or coconut oil; for vegan banana muffins, just stick with the coconut oil. And instead of using honey, choose maple syrup for the added sweetener. The maple syrup will alter the flavor somewhat, but who’s gonna complain about being served maple vegan banana muffins??
