- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- First, whisk flour, baking soda, & salt together in a large mixing bowl. (I have included an affiliate link*, for your convenience, I LOVE these mixing bowls because they are wide but compact and they are made of glass. You will love them!)
- Next, soften the butter.
- Into a mixer add the bananas, softened butter, sugar, room temp eggs, cranberry ( or blueberries) and vanilla. Stir with the whisk paddle until combined well and a little fluffy.
- Switch to the Flat Beater mixer paddle and slowly add the wet ingredients into the mixer. Stir until just combined – do not over mix.
- Using an Ice Cream Scoop, scoop out the batter into a greased or paper lined 12 muffin pan. (* I have included a link to my favorite muffin pan, these are awesome).
- Bake for about 22 – 26 minutes or until muffins are golden brown and toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
- Finally, remove muffins from pan and let cool completely on rack.
