Banana Muffins

Banana Muffins
One of my all-time favorite things is banana bread.  But my issue is that I can pretty much eat a whole loaf of it in a day or two.  So when I had some very ripe bananas this weekend I decided to make banana muffins instead,  in the hopes of only eating one at a time, you also can’t cut your slice to be the size of 1/4 of the loaf with a muffin.
Well it worked, I only ate one muffin at a time and the whole family loved them.  My daughter loved them so much she kept asking for more, but after two I cut her off (I think maybe she has mommies issue with eating the whole loaf).  I did end up freezing a few so my daughter could have them later in the week for breakfast without the risk of all of us eating them if they were left out.  I find that they do freeze well and I have kept whole loafs in the freezer for a couple of weeks and they still taste fresh when we defrost them and eat them up.

    These sound delicious! One question: The 1/4C of brown sugar….is that mixed in with the white sugar, bananas, etc….?


    Anonymous, yes it is. The 1/4 cup of brown sugar gets mixed in with the white sugar and the 2 1/2 tbs of brown sugar is mixed in for the topping. Sorry for the confusion.
