1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 large ripe bananas, mashed

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1/3 cup milk

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

12 dried banana chips, optional

How to Make It

Step 1
Preheat oven to 375°F; mist a standard 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper or foil liners. In a large bowl, combine both types of flour with baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

Step 2
In a separate bowl, mix bananas with eggs, sugar, milk, butter and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. Fold banana mixture into flour mixture just until combined and batter forms; do not overmix.

Step 3
Spoon batter into muffin cups; place a banana chip on top of each one, if desired. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then turn out onto rack to cool completely.
