How To Make Banana Carrot Muffins

This simple Banana Carrot Muffins recipe is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Mash bananas with apple butter, vanilla, and egg. If using frozen bananas, allow them to defrost before starting the cake, or nuke them for a minute.
  2. Combine dry ingredients and stir into the banana mixture just until incorporated. Over-mixing can cause the batter to become too dense and heavy, so don’t worry about mixing “perfectly.”
  3. Fold in the nuts and carrots and pour into the prepared pan.

Banana Carrot Muffins will keep on the counter wrapped in foil, saran wrap, or in an airtight container for a few days. You can extend the expiry date by keeping it in the fridge for up to a week.

Personally, I like to keep a few wrapped in foil on the counter and I freeze the rest. And to be honest, they are not going to last a week in my house anyway! All my neighbors will be knocking for a snack 🙂

To Freeze

Bananna Carrot Muffins are one of those wonderful foods that freeze beautifully. I like to wrap them individually in wax paper then place in a freezer ziplock bag. Then all I have to do is pull out a piece, warm it up, and enjoy with a cup of coffee! Top it with cream cheese frosting, and it will taste just as good or better than it did on the day you made it!
