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:)

Like mother….like daughter you say?
I sit here reading your blog sipping on a Egg Nog Latte as well! Dad is trying the Creme Brule. I sneaked a bit of the Creme Brule and it was delicious as well!
The banana muffins sound & look delicious!
i've had bananas in my freezer for 5 months, going on 6, with the intension to make something of them. this might work, but are my bananas still good?
althought i love strbx eggnog, the best is second cup's noel nog because they use double shots in their smalls. double shots is where its at.

Amy- try them…what's the worst that could happen right? I find them super mushy and disgusting, but they might bake well…
Tell me what happens!

Actually "super mushy" bananas make the best muffins.
The good cooks in Saskatchewan taught me to freeze really ripe bananas…they are perfect for banana bread/muffins!
