Orange Banana Muffins – these moist banana muffins have a yummy citrus flavor. The glaze makes them extra delicious!
I’m not sure why, but when the weather starts turning warmer, I feel the need to bake with citrus. It’s just such a happy, sunshiney flavor, isn’t it?
I don’t know why I’ve never thought to combine orange and banana before, but it’s a perfect flavor combination. Such a yummy update on regular banana muffins.
These muffins are great just plain, but if you want a special treat, add the glaze on top. Sour cream adds a bit of tartness that balances out the sweet, and pairs perfectly with the orange zest.
If you’re looking for a new banana recipe (you can’t have too many), give these orange banana muffins a try. They would be perfect for a spring brunch or bridal shower!
