Are you looking for a new recipe to try with the overripe bananas sitting on your counter? I’ve got an easy recipe for Cinnamon Banana Muffins using a box cake mix. I always make the same Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread with my bananas, but I decided to try something different this time and use up a box cake mix from my stockpile. These turned out great – my boys have almost devoured them for breakfast the last couple mornings.


  • Box Cake Mix (yellow or white)
  • 3 small, overripe bananas smashed
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
  • Additional sugar and cinnamon for top


  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Pour smashed bananas and cake mix into stand mixer and mix completely.
  3. Add 1 Tbsp sugar and 1 Tbsp cinnamon to mixture and continue to mix.
  4. Scoop into mini muffin tin or regular size muffin tins with cupcake liners. I love to use my small scoop for the mini muffins and a medium scoop for the regular size muffins.
  5. Mix more sugar and cinnamon in a separate dish and sprinkle on muffins.
  6. Bake mini muffins for approximately 15 minutes or regular size muffins for 18 minutes. Watch closely and test with toothpick to ensure done.
  7. Remove from oven and enjoy!

For whatever reason, my boys tend to eat the mini muffins up more quickly than a regular size muffin.
