I buy bananas almost every time I grocery shop, but I don't remember the last time I actually just ate a banana. Their fate is always smoothies or muffins at my house. I had a request for my banana muffin recipe today and thought I'd share it here while I was already typing it up. My kids love these, and when I have a lot of bananas I double the batch and freeze half for quick breakfasts.
1 c. sugar (I usually cut this by up to half)
2 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg (I've omitted this when I'm out without a problem)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 c. oil (I often use canola, but they are delicious with coconut oil or butter, and I've also subbed applesauce for the oil although it decreases the banana flavor)
2 c. mashed bananas
1 tsp vanilla
Combine dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients. Bake at 350 for approximately 20 minutes or until golden brown. This can also be made in loaves, bake in 2 greased loaf pans for 1 hour.
