I’m laughing as I’m writing this post because this is what two of my kids just said, “You can only make that much?! It’s going to be gone before dad gets home.” And yes, that’s all I can make because I don’t have anymore bananas….geez. So I’m guessing that this muffin recipe is going into the “keep” recipe pile.
If your house is like ours, we always end up with two or three overripe bananas. Usually, I’ll slice up the bananas before it gets too overripe and freeze them for smoothies. However, these two were pushed behind my rice cooker and too soft to slice up. So what better thing to make than banana muffins? YUM!
