Mini Banana-Maple Pancake Muffins

These gems are like little banana pancakes baked into muffin shapes, which makes them easy to pop into your mouth. For the sweetest flavor, use and overly ripe banana; and to take these over the top, toss 1/2 cup (3 oz./90 g.) mini chocolate chips into the batter.


Mini Banana-Maple Pancake Muffins


1 cup (5 oz./155 g.) all-purpose flour

2 Tbs. sugar

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. kosher salt

2/3 cup (5 fl. oz./160 ml.) buttermilk

1 large egg

2 Tbs. pure maple syrup, plus more for dipping

2 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted

1 very ripe, large banana, mashed


Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Generously grease 24 mini muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray or grease with butter.


In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, stir together the buttermilk, egg, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, and the butter until just combined. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Stir in the mashed banana.


Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups. Bake until the muffins are puffed and golden, 10-12 minutes. Let the muffins cool slightly in the pan on a wire rack, then unmold onto the rack. Serve right away with maple syrup for dipping. Makes 2 dozen mini muffins.
