Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray or line with paper baking cups. For this batch, I used these paper liners for half of the muffins (that we were going to give away) and these colorful silicon cupcake liners for the muffins were going to keep. I like that the silicon liners are reusable and they also make great snack cups in lunch boxes!

Fill each muffin cup with about 1/4 cup of batter. To measure out the batter, I use a Medium Cookie Scoop that holds about 2 Tablespoons. I put two scoops of batter per cup, which equals about 1/4 cup. It helps to make the muffins a consistent size.

Here comes the fun part! Mix the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon with the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the top of each muffin and, if you feel like it, swirl the mixture into the batter with a toothpick. This part is totally optional though.

  1. These are delicious!! Can you add frozen berries or would that mess them up? I love how cinnamon-y they are!

  2. Sorry I’m a little confused…Is the 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon for the topping already included in the quantities in the ingredient list or is that separate? Looking forward to trying this tonight!

    • Sorry for the confusion, I must have over looked adding the 1/4 cup sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon to the ingredient list. Adding them now. I hope you like them!

  3. These were so easy, smelled amazing through the house, and were a big hit! My tough critic brother used the word amazing and my picky dad said they were awesome!
    I want to triple the batch today. I know some recipes will tell you to just multiple it by three while others say it’s not that simple. Have you ever doubkenor tripled a batch? If so did you just simply multiple x2?
    Thanks!

  4. Made these last weekend and going to be making them again this morning. They are SOOO good!!! My little family of 3 ate all 12 muffins in 1 morning.

    • I’ve never tried it as banana bread, but I’m sure it could work. Just increase the baking time to around 30 minutes and keep an eye on it. Let me know if it works out!

    • I’m sure it can, but I’ve never tried it. I would probably increase the baking time to 30-35 minutes, but definitely keep an eye on it and check it with a toothpick. Let me know how it turns out!

  5. Great recipe. Thanks! I did it as a loaf. Added about 20 minutes to the cook time. I admittedly hate all things banana. But my husband loves it. So I go by his judgment. I added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg to the batter. Then I placed thinly sliced apple slices on the top and finally covered it with the cinnamon sugar. I was told it was delicious!
