I’ve realized lately there isn’t much I love more than muffins. Well, maybe cupcakes. But muffins are pretty darn good. Especially when they have bananas in them! This is the perfect mid morning snack at work. It’s sweet, but doesn’t leave you weighed down. I highly recommend giving them a try next time you have some bananas on hand that look like these:
Maybe it’s just me, but I’m pretty superficial when it comes to fruit. You’d have to pay me money to eat those bananas. When I see bananas on my counter like that, I feel bad for them for about .25 seconds until I decide to cut them up and freeze them for later, or smash them up and bake them into sweet morsels.
I’d much rather have my ugly bananas look like whats in those muffin tins than just some ugly brown, soft, spotty bananas — yuck!
So go ahead, make these muffins! I’m sure you have some ugly bananas around your kitchen on occasion. I can’t be the only one that lets my bananas turn brown.
