Banana Brickle Muffins | www.tasteandtellblog.com #recipe #banana #muffin

Welcome to Taste and Tell Thursdays! Come link up your posts below!

So I have a question.

When I buy bananas at the store, they are usually a little bit green. This usually gives us a few days to eat them up before they get overripe. But why is it that sometimes those bananas get ripe in like 12 hours after you get home from the store??

I swear that is what this last bunch of bananas felt like. Like I didn’t even have time to eat one before they turned. We already talked about how I like my bananas. And these just had no chance.

I know that I’ve been all about the banana lately. Black and White Banana Cake, I remade some Banana Cookies, and from the looks of it, even after these muffins, I still have more bananas to go. They just aren’t giving me a break here!!

But that’s ok, because I’ve been able to make some pretty great banana goods. Like these muffins. I just couldn’t resist. Toffee pieces and bananas – together in muffins? Sign me up!

And now I will be sending the rest of these babies to work with my husband. Because I honestly can’t keep my hands off of them.

Another use for those over-ripe bananas, these muffins combine toffee with banana for a decadent breakfast treat.
Serves: 16 servings
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • ½ cup milk
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 package (8 oz) toffee bits, divided
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease 16 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center and add in the bananas, milk, oil and egg. Lightly mix just until combined. Stir in 1 cup of the toffee bits.
  3. Fill the muffin cups ¾ full. Sprinkle the remaining toffee bits on top. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, 18-20 minutes.

    Perfect looking muffins! I love that topping.



  2. I pretty much love just about any baked goodie made with banana, and these muffins are no exception! I love their name too – fun! 🙂 The banana and toffee sound perfect together…

  3. Thanks for LMK that my recipe was the most clicked of the week & for re-showcasing it in this post!

    I love banana anything. You cannot have too many recipes for using them. Just the word BRICKLE gets me. I Loveeeee heath bars and toffee and I can only imagine how good these are!

  4. And now I need a bag of toffee bits 🙂 This looks like a perfect combo and there are always enough brown bananas at my house to make muffins any day of the week!

  5. Deborah,
    Those muffins look yummy! Last week I made a whole grain banana and Speculoos muffin (I’d been to Trader Joes) and I’d like to do a mash-up adding your toffee bits on top of my muffin–I think the combo would be terrific.

    I’ve linked up some pretty meat-heavy recipes today. First, since today is Pi day, a meat pie for pie day. My daughter unexpectedly defrosted my fruit and veg freezer when plugging in her glue gun, so I’ll make a blueberry-peach pie with the salvaged fruit to go alongside. Second, since the kids weighed the ingredients and did the math, a meat loaf that only contains 48.3% meat. The rest–veggies from my CSA farm share and stuff needing to be used up. Finally, I’m linking up another option for a green St Patty’s Pizza: Turkey, Pesto, and Spinach pizza.

    Thanks for hosting!

    Thanks so much for including my shrimp in the post, much appreciated!

  11. Thanks so much for featuring my whoopie pies today! I was really excited to see that! Thanks for hosting this party! Those muffins look amazing! I love banana muffins!

  12. These look so good, I love that brickle topping!

  13. I’m a picky banana eater – they have to still be a little green, so I always have plenty of overrip bananas around. I’ll have to make some muffins!

  14. AltaG says:

    It’s no wonder we have sometimes liked to allow the bananas to get a bit
    really ripe…the riper, the Sweeter, and well don’t you find that thenthe bread part of the Muffins always Has a SWEETER flavor…we do! I think sometimes they actually refuse to want any Bananas in thier cereal so that I’ll soon HAve to make then “BabananaBread” as my little one says!
    Thanks..this is SURE to become a FAV!

  15. Joanne says:

    I feel like whenever I want bananas to turn brown, they don’t and whenever I want them to stay green…they don’t. So it’s never quite the win/win situation I want it to be. But I am definitely making these muffins the next time I’m in banana overload! Yum! Love the topping.

  16. carrian says:

    I looooove freckly bananas. I’ll trade you my barely ripes for your over ripes. 😉 (it’s like elementary school again)

  17. Deb I LOVE these muffins!
    All banana muffins should be made this way!

  18. teresa says:

    YUM! i love that topping, what a fun way to mix up a banana muffin!

  19. OMG those muffins. Those sweet toffee banana muffins. MUST MAKE SOON.

  20. Wish I knew why they get so ripe so quick as well too! I have found that certain stores I shop in just sell a better quality banana.

  21. Wow – I love all these muffin recipes to choose from. I’m such a muffin and coffee fan. I can’t wait to try some of these out.

  22. Wendy says:

    I like to add toffee bits to everything! I love the flavor and the crunch. These muffins look great! You know that you can freeze over ripe bananas for future baking in the unlikely event that you ever get tired of baking them immediately? Just peel them and stick them in a zip lock bag in the freezer. They don’t look lovely when they defrost but if you are just going to mash them up anyway, who cares. 🙂

  23. grace says:

    those toffee bits are so useful…unless one is trying to consume fewer calories. 🙂

  24. Yes, Please! These muffins look amazing! 🙂
