Easy Banana Muffins Recipe
We have a monkey living in our house, and his name is Luke! I swear that boy would eat a banana for every meal. So generally we don’t have bananas “go bad” in our house. But when they do start to get brown (because the kids have a mental block to eating them when the skin is no longer bright yellow)- my go to recipe is Banana Muffins.
You can also use this recipe to take advantage of discounted manager’s special finds too. I have often bought the past ripe banana’s just to make these (or can make it into Banana Bread with same recipe, just bake a little longer).
