When we got back from a trip recently, I came home to some overripe bananas. These were a little riper than I like, but I really try not to waste food, so it was time to make my sweet banana muffins.
I have made many quick banana muffins through the years, and this recipe for Sweet Banana Muffins is my favorite. I tend to rework recipes until they are to my liking because life is too short to eat sub-par food. These are topped with a lovely crunchy brown sugar topping.
Bananas can be frozen when they are overripe and used later. They are perfect to be used for smoothies, bread and muffins. I used to just throw them out, but now I freeze them once they get a little spotty.
The muffins come together quite easily,
Within minutes you will have a nice muffin for breakfast or a snack.
These are sweet and simple and that brown sugar topping is everything!
