Brown Bananas

Devin likes to eat bananas with a tiny bit of green on the peel.  The kids like them perfectly yellow.  I don’t mind a little brown on the peel.  Well, when Anna Claire sees that our bananas are turning brown, she immediately thinks we need to make banana muffins.  Now seriously, my kids LOVE these banana muffins.  We use their Nana’s recipe.  It is so easy and so yummy.  The other day after nap it was a little chilly outside, so we stayed in and made muffins.  Anna Claire was ready to help.  Charlie wanted to observe and continue munching on his apple.  🙂

Just in case you want it, here’s the recipe:

1/4 C                      Shortening

1/2 C                      Sugar or Splenda (I’ve used both)

1 C                          Plain Flour

1/2 tsp                  Baking Soda

1                              Egg

1/2 tsp                  Vanilla

2                              Ripe Bananas

1/4 c                       Nuts – optional (we don’t put nuts)

 Combine ingredients. Grease pan.  Makes 48 mini muffins.  Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
