How to make mini banana muffins
Step 1: In a bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: salt, flour, and baking soda. Set aside.
Step 2: Gather the wet ingredients.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the mashed banana, melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract, and pure maple syrup.
Step 3: Add the dry ingredients to the wet and whisk until just combined. Do not over mix.
Step 4: If you do not want chocolate chips in your muffins, you can skip this step. What I did was to make half and half.
I added half of the batter to the mini muffin tin, then folded chocolate chips into the remaining half of the batter.
Step 5: Grease the mini muffin tin, then fill evenly with the mini muffin batter.
Step 6: bake the banana muffins at 350 degrees for 11-14 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Allow the muffins to cool 2-3 minutes in the pan, then use a butter knife to gently remove them from the pan and onto a wire cooling rack.
