Good afternoon my friends,
Well, as my baby has nap #2 of the day, I am sitting in the haze of an eggnog latte coma and my tummy is full of the best banana muffins ever!
Eggnog latte- I cannot take credit for. It’s a Starbucks masterpiece and I love it with every fibre of my being…lol! I think I like it more then the Pumpkin Spice latte, which I really do love. The Carmel Brulee is next on my list. I do believe that from October – Decemeber I could single handedly keep my Starbucks going. I drink way too many of their delicious specialty drinks during those months.
However, the real reason for my post today is to share with you all the greatest banana muffin recipe. I had some almost ready to be thrown out bananas sitting on my counter. I find they don’t freeze well for baby food and, even though Zachary loves them a lot, he really only has half of one two times a week. I detest throwing out food so, I put on my Suzie Homemaker hat and decided to make muffins during his afternoon nap. I don’t really know what possessed me to do it, but I did.
I have an old recipe for banana muffins that I have tweaked over the years. I don’t know where the original one came from, but I think I have finally figured out the key to great muffins- a little less sugar and FOUR bananas. They turn out incredibly moist with that extra banana and, as I already find bananas pretty sweet when baked, they don’t need that much sugar.
I count banana muffins as a fruit serving, so eat up!!!
Happy Friday…we have a new giveaway coming up next week, so stay tuned:)
