This is my favorite use for bananas that are over ripe. I use to make muffins from scratch but this little recipe is SO much easier and a whole lot less messy. My son can make these on his own any time he wants some!

This recipe seriously only uses three ingredients - one box of cake mix - three bananas - and one egg. That is it!

How to Ripen Bananas Quickly

If you have ripe bananas but want to make this recipe you can ripen them faster by placing them in a closed paper bag. The banana will release ethylene gas which helps speed up the ripening process. This usually takes a few hours. You can also place the bananas in the oven and bake them at 250 degrees for 10-30 minutes. When they turn black they are done!

How to Store Cooked Banana Muffins

  • Stand Mixer
  • Cupcake Pan
  • Large Bowl



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a cupcake pan with cooking spray or you can use cupcake liners to line the pan.
  • Add the bananas to the mixer and turn it on low. Once they are mushy, add the egg and cake mix. Scrap sides and make sure everything is combined. You can just use a bowl if you don't have a stand mixer.
  • Then pour into the cupcake liners or a muffin pan. Fill them close to the top - you should be able to get 12 muffins out of one batch.
  • Bake for 15- 17 minutes. Use a toothpick to check for doneness. It should come out clean when you poke a muffin.
