I’ve been making banana bread like crazy the last few months and am so happy how my banana muffins turned out today! If you’re not familiar with cookie butter, you must try it. Look for Biscoff at your grocery stores. I get mine from Target too. It’s cinnamon sugar fantastic. Excited for you to try these cookie butter banana muffins!

What You’ll Need For Banana Bread Muffins

  • salted butter– I used salted butter in the majority of my cooking and baking recipes, unsalted would be just fine here as well.
  • granulated sugar– The sugar brings the sweetness to the muffins and is added to the cinnamon for the churro topping.
  • large eggs– Use large eggs in your baking to keep everything consistent.
  • pure vanilla extract– When shopping for vanilla, make sure it is pure vanilla extract.
  • over ripe bananas x 3– When the peels of your bananas turn brown or brown spotted, you know they’re ready to make banana bread.
  • Biscoff cookie butter– Not all grocery stores sell Biscoff cookie butter. I have the best luck at Target, Walmart or ordering on Amazon.
  • all-purpose flour- The flour is part of the dry ingredients of the muffins.
  • kosher salt– Kosher salt is a coarse salt often used in cooking and baking.
  • baking soda– Find baking soda in the baking section of your grocery store. A very common ingredient in baking.
  • ground cinnamon– Find ground cinnamon in the baking section of the grocery store.

    I made these exactly as written & they were out of this world! Normally my son doesn’t like muffins, but he happily downed 2 for breakfast- unheard of! Thanks for the delicious recipe, Jenny!

    Your recipe brings banana bread to the next level! I reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup and added 1/4 cup of buttermilk to keep the muffins soft and fluffy. Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe! 🙂

    Is there a diary free substitute for the butter? I wasn’t sure if I could use coconut oil or vegan butter.

    These were DELICIOUS! I only put 2/3 cup of sugar instead of 1 cup and it was perfect. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly.
