It’s safe to say that I have a freezer full of bananas and a buttload of flour.
Worry not, I didn’t go to the store and hoard these items, I’ve had them in my home for many moons.
I joke with my husband that, perhaps, I have been planning for a pandemic. It’s not that my pantry is busting at the seams, it’s more that I just so happen to have accumulated goods needed for a shelter-in for some time now.
Happy accident? I think, yes.
Who knew the 18 black bananas in my freezer would finally become a need and not just space-taker-uppers?
Now that I have all the time at home to bake, I thought I’d tackle the copious amounts of overripe bananas. So, that’s what I’ve been doing.
I have made this recipe twice now (after editing one I found online) and I must say:
These little muffins are damn good!
They are soft, moist, flavorful, and simple!
Perhaps one of the easiest bakes I’ve ever done.
Now, go on, grab two bananas from your freezer and join me in making some of the best homemade banana muffins around!
