Prepare your baking tins by greasing or by lining with cupcake liners then set your oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit (About 176 Degrees Celsius).
Peel your dejected bananas and dump in a blender. Add in some water (about a quarter cup) and blend. If you are feeling to use liquid milk to blend instead of water. Put that in your mixing bowl. It is the one and only mixing bowl you will need for this recipe.

Pour in the vegetable oil.
Give that a really good mix.
Now, throw in flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
Mix until everything is in harmony.
Fill your prepared baking tin with the batter trying to make sure each hole has about the same amount of batter.
Now top each of them with a few shakes of cinnamon powder. Please note that this is totally optional.
Use a spoon to lightly swirl the cinnamon. Don’t mix it. Just turn it in a little so it looks more appealing.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
