Recipe: 2-Ingredient Banana Muffins

Dessert Recipes, Snack and Appetizer Recipes

By: Chris Freytag, CPT

What do you think about muffins that are insanely easy to make and are actually pretty healthy?  These two 2-ingredient muffin recipes require a box of cake mix and bananas.  It’s seriously that simple!  And if you’re really looking to cut out even more of the junk, I’d suggest Namaste Foods Cake Mix. I use this brand because it’s wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, preservative-free, and GMO-free.  Bananas about to go bad? Make these muffins! Whenever you can sneak extra potassium and fiber into your day via bananas, it’s a win!

Total Time: 23 minutes

Yield: 12 serving(s)


  • 3/4 box Namaste Vanilla Cake Mix (or 1 box vanilla cake mix of your favorite brand. Namaste is 26 ounces verses the typical 18 ounces.)
  • 4 Medium Sized Ripe Bananas
  • Optional Add-Ins: Dark or Milk Chocolate Chips


  1. Mash the bananas in a bowl with a fork, and then combine with the vanilla cake mix. Stir until smooth.
  2. If desired, stir in some chocolate chips.
  3. Spoon the batter into paper lined cupcake tins, sprayed with non-stick spray, 2/3 full.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 16 to 18 minutes until done.
