This Banana Muffins recipe that is adapted from Preppy Kitchen is a keeper.  I only made slight modifications to the recipe.   The texture is soft, light and fluffy.  It is a really simple and easy recipe that does not require an electric mixture and it can be done in 30 minutes.

As advised by John Kanell of Preppy Kitchen, the secret to moist and fluffy muffins, is to not use an electric mixer  as we would risk over-mixing the batter,  resulting in dense muffins or large holes in the crumb.   Use a spatula instead and mix until everything is just combined. 

This is an awesome base recipe for Banana Muffins.  You may add in chocolate chips or nuts as you like.
