I hope you enjoy my quick and easy banana muffins and so much more post today. These are moist and fluffy muffins you make from scratch. You can add your favorite fruits and vegetables because these are so simple to make. I bet you can almost smell the muffins baking in the oven, right?

Here’s the deal, you can make these for breakfast, for after school lunches, and they will fill the belly with ingredients from your pantry after a disaster. If you can’t make bread you can make crackers or muffins. Yay!

How To Bake Them After A Disaster

There is something special about a muffin coming out of the oven with bananas, blueberries, cranberries, cinnamon, carrots, etc. You can bake them in a Sun Oven, a gas barbecue or a CampChef combination stove/oven if you have some propane stored.

Yes, a Volcano Stove would work, but the “tent” makes my food taste like smoke. Just giving you the heads up here.

Here’s the one I have: Camp Chef Camping Outdoor Oven with 2 Burner Camping Stove

The Sun Oven is great if you have sun rays available, it’s not good in areas that have mainly cloudy days. Here’s one like I have: All American Sun Oven- The Ultimate Solar Appliance (I have two of the old style model and I love them).

If you have sun rays without clouds and the pan fits in the Sun Oven you can bake anything in it that you bake in your conventional oven. Do you have a muffin mix you love?

    Love the recipes. Unfortunately, I have never cared for bananas!! I generally don’t like the texture nor the flavor. BUT, I do love blueberries, apple and cinnamon and my favorite is pumpkin!

    I have the easiest pumpkin muffin recipe that produces the moistest muffin. I cannot remember where I got this recipe but it is great.
    Ingredients: spice cake mix (just the dry mix)
    1 can of pumpkin puree (not the pie mixture)
    pumpkin pie spice (cause who doesn’t like more spices!!)
    Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12 cup muffin tin with liners (I prefer the liners that are not paper) or spray/oil the muffin tin with your favorite spray or oil. Mix the dry cake mix, pumpkin puree and additional pumpkin pie spice to taste. This takes a bit of time but well worth it in taste! Fill the muffin tin and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. These freeze really well and are so moist. Just the thing with coffee in the morning.
