Steamed Banana Muffins

Muffins! What more banana muffins !  I love anything banana ...I love them in cakes, muffins and cupcakes and in pancakes too.  Banana packs with a big nutritional punch.  And they are free of fat , cholesterol and sodium and provides a variety of vitamins and minerals and I am trying to import more banana into my diet :) It is freaking good for health and I am a banana nut.  But bananas are expensive nowadays...mmmm maybe I should plant it container in my small space. Leaves can be used to wrap fish for grilling :) not a bad idea to grow my own banana :p  Ok back to these delectable, moist banana muffins, it is easy to prepare and it takes only 30 mins for the whole process.  These banana muffins are healthy for adults and children.  Will definitely make them again :)

aahhh.... 6 yummilicious banana muffins waiting to be devoured :))

soft and moist, easy to digest
I mashed the banana coarsely so that one can
taste the fruit as you bite into the muffins
mmmmmm...mouth watering muffins....

  1. Yeah, we do think alike, aren't we ! haha.... My first attempt and also my first try without the brown sugar to go along with banana recipe. The tastes is so refreshing indeed. Hope you're going to have a wonderful Easter Day.

  2. Thanks for your recipe.I didn't have self-raising flour, so I changed to all purpose flour and added 1/2 tsp of baking powder into it.It really taste yummy and fluffy! Love it!
