These Bisquick banana muffins are great on their own, but they're especially tasty heated for 20–30 seconds in the microwave and served with butter.
If you don't want your baking cup soaked through with oil, you can double-line your muffins. You can see in the photo above that the two muffins in the center (which are double-lined) are less oily-looking than the muffins on the side (which only have one baking cup).
Allow the muffins to cool completely before storing.
Store in an airtight container lined with a paper towel for 3 to 4 days at room temperature. Keep the muffins in a single layer. Using a paper towel will prevent the muffins from becoming soggy.
To freeze: Wrap the individual muffins tightly in plastic wrap. Put the wrapped muffins in a freezer bag and remove as much air from the bag as possible. Store frozen muffins for up to 3 months.
The muffins can be thawed at room temperature for about an hour or in the microwave unwrapped on a paper towel or microwave-safe plate on high for 30 seconds.

Bisquick is a pre-made baking mix containing flour, shortening, salt, sugar, and baking powder.
Bisquick is convenient, especially if you already have it on hand. Bisquick contains all-purpose flour, shortening (i.e., vegetable oil), salt, sugar, and leavening ingredients (including baking soda), so you need less (or none) of these ingredients, depending on the recipe.
Very ripe bananas are extra sweet compared to underripe bananas. This makes your banana bread or banana muffins taste even better.
- Wash hands, utensils, equipment, and work surfaces with hot, soapy water before and after they come in contact with raw eggs and raw egg-containing foods.
