Banana Muffins


Banana MuffinsBreakfast is my lazy meal. I don’t feel like cooking anything in the morning and I am most likely running out the door anyways, so who has time for stacks of pancakes, bacon, eggs, fruit salad, and all that good stuff that I would love to eat instead of a handful of grapes? The only solution I have found are muffins. Fresh muffins, baked up on a Sunday afternoon, ready for the week. Just pop one of the mellow muffins into the microwave for a good 10 seconds and bam! You have a warm ready to go breakfast, with the handful of grapes. The easiest muffin recipe I know is for Banana Muffins. One bowl and a spatula is all you need to prepare the batter and then bake in a muffin tin. Just wait until some overly ripe bananas fall into your lap and you are good to go. Overly ripe bananas are best to use over unripe, or ripe bananas because the banana flavor is much more pronounced and the mushy gushy banana lends to a moister muffin. (Moister is a weird word if you keep saying it over & over)

Delicious Rating: Yummy yummy in my tummy. Moist, doesn’t fall apart on you, filling breakfast, and just delicious. I love how you can individually wrap them in saran or foil and freeze them. Pop them out and let the muffin come to room temp in about 5 minutes and heat up in the microwave. They taste like they came fresh out of the oven. Easy recipe, perfect for breakfast.

Ripe bananas can be mashed all the way through. I like to leave some chunkiness for a banana surprise with every bite.

Do not over mix the batter but just fold ingredients together until just combined, to the point where you don’t see flour anymore.
