Banana muffins

Never had banana bread or cake.. or muffins before! Everyone is jumping high and sharing success with banana bread and I was like “No way!”. I don’t like baked bananas… There is a recipe for baked bananas and add ice cream on top. Crazy! Not for me!


My favorite pancake recipe includes mashed banana… there it fits perfectly… but I had 3 very ripe bananas and only one needed for pancakes. I don’t like throwing away food! So I had a deep breath and open my laptop to search for the recipe. Banana muffins!? Maybe girls will like them… 8AM on New year’s eve and I’m in the kitchen baking muffins…


And at the end they were good! So good, I need to share the recipe here, to remember for the next time I’ll  have overripe bananas! Original recipe is from
