Finally. We stop devouring bananas long enough to have three bananas go brown. Seriously, my family consumes a fantastic amount of bananas, at least a good couple bunches a week. Rarely do we have brown bananas. For eating, I prefer the beautifully rich yellow ones that still have green ends. Then when I peel it open, there is no sign of bruising on the pale creamy flesh, which still resists a little before yielding. Just a hint of tartness before the sweetness settles in. Yes, I can be picky like that, but I would take a sub-par banana anyway. 😉
So I’ve got these three large squishy, sorry looking fruits sitting on the dinner table. Time to make muffins.
Mini ones are just so darn cute. It’s impossible to eat just one. I stopped looking up banana bread recipes a long time ago. These days I just use what I have and make it up along the way. They always come out differently, just like my chocolate chip cookies.
This particular batch packs a powerful banana punch and is super moist. For banana bread lovers!
