What is the difference between a muffin and a cupcake?

Muffins tend to be less sweat compared to a cupcake. Cupcakes are simply mini cakes whereas muffins are made with healthier flour and ingredients. Cupcakes are tender and rich because they are mostly made with eggs and butter. On the other hand, a muffin, like this Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins is denser and less rich which makes them a much healthier treat. Muffins can be savory instead of sweet and you can pretty much have daily whereas a cupcake is more of a dessert you have on occasions.

    Needed something to stay within my macros but wasn’t bland and boring . These were delicious if you want it a little sweeter then ad half a cup of sweetner instead of 1/4

  2. Sandra Fuline says

    Vanilla is not enough list of ingredients needed but it is in the video. How much should be used?

  3. Jennifer ochoa says

    It says one cup of banana how many banana is that?
    How long to bake at 400?
    Can I not use cupcake liners ?

    • Rena says

      Hi. You don’t have to use cupcake liners. You will need about 3 large bananas and bake for 15-18 minutes. Use a toothpick to check for doneness until it comes out clean.

  4. Valerie says

    Hi Rena,
    Thanks for sharing. Can I use honey in place of the stevia and ground oatmeal in place of whole wheat flour? Thanks.

  5. SC says

    I am making your banana oatmeal chocolate chip muffins right now and noticed a couple of omissions it should be corrected:

    – instructions say whisk in egg , yet no egg is listed on ingredients
    – when mixing the dry ingredients together, oats are omitted

    Big time at 400°, yet they are very well done, brown on top. Are used muffin papers in a metal nonstick tin. Any suggestions?

    I made your Slow Cooker southwest turkey chili- it was a hit!

    I Instagram-thank you so much !

    • Rena says

      Hi, Thank you! So sorry I did forget to add the egg in the ingredients I fixed it! Yes, you would have to use a nonstick pan. It was ok in my oven at 400 degrees but if it was too brown on your end test if it’s done at 15 minutes or lower temp at 350.
      I am so glad you liked the chicken chili
