The Easiest Banana Bread Muffins

Per the usual I’m trying out new recipes all the time. Good, Bad, Indifferent I love to share them with you. This one is a winner in our house. Lucas loves them more than any of us. He sees the Tupperware on the counter and repeats “banna bread peas” until I give in. Which I tend to and then I hide them so he forgets about them. No joke I made them yesterday morning and there are only 8 left (of 15) today I’m sure by the end of tomorrow they will vanish. But I’m not mad one bit we’ll just have to make them again next week. Luckily I have a stash of brown bananas in my freezer, it seems we never finish a bunch before they turn on the counter so I always end up putting the last one into the freezer for baking later on. So handy!! Typically I aim for the healthier recipes but you have been warned this one is full of real flour & sugar. I may try to modify in the future but it’s so delicious as is I don’t see the harm in moderation and yummy baked treats. Its extra fun when you have little hands to help in the prep process.
