Another great snack to have around in the house and easy to put in your child’s snack box is muffins.
“What am I going to do with all these overripe bananas?” Is the thought that comes to my mind when I have too many laying on the counter. In our home we don’t like to spoil food, so in this case, when the bananas start to become mushy and brown, these is when bananas are at their best to use for baking, they are so much sweeter, we bake banana muffins or banana bread.
I hope you enjoy these muffins as much as we do!
