Recipe: Banana Muffins in Airfryer

Finally a baked goods recipe that I’m happy with!

There’s SOMETHING about baking that I could NEVER get right. I blame it on… well, non-hereditary non-talent. My mother and sister bake delicious treats; wait a minute, I didn’t inherit that bit!

Cooking is forgiving. Missed out an ingredient? Don’t worry, there’s always something else to make up for it. So easy to fake it like a pro, bro!

But baking! It’s like thermodynamics to someone who doesn’t know what thermodynamics means, yet uses it as an example in a baking-related context! The nerve of these plebeians…!

But yes, baking. There are strict rules and principles to follow, which do not bode well for a person who cannot follow instructions, i.e. me.

Still I tried and tried. Failure played in my mind like a lingering bad dream (and a boy named xxx). Obsessed? Me? Never! 😛

I just want to BE ABLE to bake SOMETHING that I would eat.

… and I finally did.

This Banana Muffin recipe contains 2 eggs, NO oil and NO butter. This results in an old-fashioned dense muffin, NOT light nor fluffy. Almost like a heavy quick bread type. Rich, filling, moist, slightly chewy and not too sweet. This recipe makes 12 large muffins.
