I have not been in the kitchen very much as of late…my family can certainly attest to my absence. A few days ago, I noticed the bananas getting almost to the point of beyond saving and thought it best to make them into a tasty treat rather than throw away. I turned to my homemade recipe book and dug out a favorite for Banana Muffins. I found it interesting when seeking a quick recipe in my authored books, not one had a single version for this muffin. The fact that I had it scrawled on a piece of paper and tucked in a plastic sleeve meant I searched before, came up empty handed and created one.
I also wanted to use my new USA muffin pan. Have you tried these silicone coated bakeware yet? I started with a cookie sheet and have begun to slowly change over all of my pans to this product- bread pan, cake pans and now muffin. NOTHING STICKS to them! They are awesome! To save you the trouble, here is my version of yummy Banana Muffins and an affiliate link to these awesome baking pans. If you like walnuts, by all means add them in! These are great as breakfast, to enjoy with tea or coffee or as a snack in the lunch bag.
