Apple Banana Muffin

Stella made this Apple Banana Muffin for last year’s Caring Place Potluck. She demonstrated this recipe in the Caring Place Community Kitchen upon Minoo’s request.


The Apple Banana Muffin is moist and the walnuts give it the crunch. This muffin is good for after school snack or breakfast. It can also be made into a loaf.


  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil or melted margarine
  • 1 cup brown sugar (less if bananas are very ripe)
  • 2 to 3 bananas
  • 1 large apple
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, toasted

Preheat the oven to 350F.

IMG_5590Peel and grate the apple.
IMG_5591Measure and sift together the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda and baking powder) in a large bowl.
IMG_5594Mix together the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl.
IMG_5597_edited-1Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Stir just to moisten.
IMG_5602Spoon into paper-cup lined muffin tins and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. If bake in a loaf pan, bake for 50 to 60 minutes. Loaf pan can be greased on bottom, but not sides.
IMG_5614Cool in pan for 5 minutes and remove muffins to cool on a wire rack. Serve with a cup of tea or coffee.

Stella, thank you for sharing.

    these were really delicious btu just so you know, it was a little confusing because in the pictures you show brown sugar but in the written recipe you list white sugar.

      Hi Stephanie, thank you for pointing out the typo mistake. I had updated the post.

    I made these muffins this morning. Used very ripe bananas so lowered the brown sugar as suggested (to 3/4 cup). I didn’t want to spend time grating the apple so diced it instead, which worked really well. The muffins were really delicious – thanks for the great recipe!
