Easy Two Ingredient Banana Muffins only take minutes to make, so they’re perfect for busy mornings. You can also make them gluten free!
I am SO not a morning person — my family will vouch for this — and I usually don’t fully wake up until I have that first cup of coffee, or maybe two.
On the rare weekends that we have nothing going on, the kids and I will fix breakfast after the necessary coffee has been consumed. Or Hubby will cook. And sleeping late definitely helps. So, usually I make banana bread or muffins from scratch.
But last week, we were out of milk, and I wasn’t fully awake, so when I found a box of cake mix in the pantry, there was a light bulb moment of sorts. We make pumpkin muffins in the fall with only cake mix and canned pumpkin, so why not try the same thing with bananas?
A quick search of Pinterest showed me that that banana cake mix muffins did exist, so I just had to try it. We had five very ripe bananas, and I think you need a good amount to be able to do this. Only two bananas probably wouldn’t cut it.
We also added cinnamon and chocolate chips since that’s how we roll. So yea, these muffins have four ingredients, but two of them are optional.
