Are you a coffee mum too?!
Haha! I love coffee, and especially more after becoming a mum! *yawns*
Today I am sharing a coffee banana muffin recipe after some tweaking, as I got nerd out and was studying baking ratios 🙂

By the way so sorry for the poor photo quality, because I couldn’t find my camera’s battery charger! (Hahah!!)
As we know, for muffins, there are mainly 2 types of methods: creaming or mixing. I prefer mixing, whereby the melted butter or oil is being mixed in directly with other wet ingredients. Though I do love buttery scent in muffins, it can be confused with cupcakes, which would have this signature buttery, fine crumbs.
I also find the mixing method makes a lighter muffin for my toddler. Of coz, she cannot eat this coffee muffin, la 😉
I love a more subtle banana flavour in muffins, so I thinned the puree bananas with some milk. You can increase the banana puree and omit milk if you prefer a full banana flavor. Also, I swapped out some melted butter with oil for a moister muffin the next day.

This is not a sweet muffin recipe, so you don’t need to reduce the sugar anymore 🙂
Of course, feel free to omit/swap out the add-ins (chocolate chips and walnuts). I am imagining peanut butter or caramel chips should go pretty well with this flavor too!
