Marvellous muffins (banana muffins, that is)!

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|Recipes and Food

I hate wasting food. Last I was looking at three very spotty bananas withering on the countertop, and I asked myself, what’s a mamma to do? Answer: MAKE MUFFINS*

* I do not consider myself a baker or a muffin maker. My muffin motivation was two-fold: (1) To use up the aforementioned bananas (2) to tempt my children with something new for breakfast.

I found this recipe for banana muffins and it totally fit the bill. It’s incredibly easy, uses THREE bananas, and the kids love the results. I call that a win-win situation, don’t you?

Banana muffins!

Banana fans may also be interested in this recipe for banana bread. It’s also very good!

Your banana bread recipe looks a lot like mine. Instead of walnuts I toss in a big handful of chocolate chips, and I usually throw in a big of flax seed. It’s good for you and disappears into the bread.
