Banana Praline Muffins

I’m not (yet) a baker, but my first-ever attempt at making mini banana muffins was a success because they turned out to be fantastically delicious. Rich, moist, super-easy to make Banana Praline Muffins from Allrecipes turned me into an instant muffin maker who could please the pickiest eater (hey, it rhymes!) Below is the recipe. Try it!


  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 small ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups packaged pancake mix
In a small bowl, combine pecans, brown sugar and sour cream; set aside. Combine egg, bananas, sugar and oil; mix well. Stir in pancake mix just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Drop 1 teaspoon of pecan mixture into center of each muffin. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until muffins test done.

  • Use silicone muffin pans for easy clean up
  • Mix in some chopped walnuts along with the chopped pecans
  • I personally prefer the muffins chilled so if you’re not eating them fresh from the oven, refrigerate them for a couple of hours before serving. They keep well for about a week.
