Quick and Easy "Treban" Banana Muffins Recipe

Quick and Easy "Treban" Banana Muffins Recipe even for beginners

Discovering My Love for Banana Bread and the Journey to Perfecting Treban Muffins

The tasty connection between traveling and baking is truly delectable. Both pursuits involve exploring and experimenting with new flavors, spices, and ingredients to create something truly unique. Baking offers a chance to indulge in new tastes and aromas, while traveling exposes you to new cultures, cuisines, and perspectives. Both practices are deeply satisfying and enriching, providing endless opportunities for growth and discovery. 

Whenever I make banana muffins, I'm reminded of the special way the aroma fills the room and each bite's warm, moist texture. It's my absolute favorite treat to whip up in the kitchen. While not everyone is a skilled baker, I discovered that I make the best banana muffins of all time – at least according to my husband. Even though I only have one fan, that's good enough for me! Let's go!

My love for banana bread began during my time in Singapore. After every yoga class, I would rush to a small kiosk in Bugis Mall to grab a slice. Now that I live in California, there are days when I suddenly crave it out of nowhere. One day, I decided to bake my own banana bread, but it was an epic fail! I couldn't stop laughing at all my failed attempts; I was just terrible in the kitchen. But I didn't give up and kept practicing until I finally perfected the craft. However, my love for banana muffins grew stronger, and I eventually achieved perfection with my Treban Muffins Recipe - also thanks to my wonderful husband who made it all happen. I am proud to say that I will one day leave a legacy for my children with my Treban Muffins. They will miss them, and I will be able to bestow the holy grail of banana muffin-making upon them. "Treban" also stands for Three Bananas making it easier to remember the recipe for my kids one day, ahahaa.

Quick and Easy "Treban" Banana Muffins Recipe

Banana muffins are easy to bake because the ingredients are simple and the recipe is straightforward. Additionally, bananas are a versatile and forgiving ingredient, making it easy to adjust the recipe to your liking.

If you're in the mood for a tasty treat but are short on time, this simple recipe is perfect for you! Whip up a batch of 12 servings in just 5-10 minutes of prep time. Then, bake for 20 minutes, and Voila! your delicious banana muffins are ready! It's healthy too as I use less sugar and whole wheat flour for this recipe.

You will need the following tools and ingredients:

  • Muffin pan
  • Large bowl
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Oven

  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 5 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • almonds, crushed (optional)
  • dark chocolate chips (optional)
  • blueberries (optional)

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Take a large bowl and mix mashed bananas with melted butter. Add sugar, egg, and vanilla. Stir well.
  3. Sprinkle baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir again.
  4. Add flour and stir until no longer powdery. You can add the chocolate chips or crushed almonds or do it last as I do. BONUS TIP: Brush your muffin pan with olive oil, so you don't need to use baking cups.
  5. Pour the batter into the muffin pan without overflowing, as it will expand. Top it off with dark chocolate chips, or crushed almonds. To add variety, I enjoy sprinkling half of the pan with chocolate and the other half with almonds.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes. Bake for 40 - 50 minutes for banana bread, depending on your oven. Allow it to cool inside the oven for 10 minutes before safely removing it.

I don't make meals everyday as I like saving my time for other important things that matter to me. Even before we had a baby my husband and I love the freedom of not worrying about "what's for dinner". We kept it simple, prepare on the weekends or whenever we're both off and do the meal prep that will last us for days. I also use a weekly meal planner to plan our meals in advance, stay on track with our wellness goals, and ensure that we have all the necessary ingredients. Preparing meals is a great way to ensure you have food to eat when you return from traveling. Just heat it up and enjoy!

To use a weekly meal planner effectively, you can start by selecting your recipes for the week, making a grocery list, and then prepping your ingredients in advance. This will make cooking and mealtime easier and less stressful. Remember to be flexible and adjust your plan as needed. Happy meal planning!
