Banana Muffins

I almost feel silly posting a recipe for banana muffins.  I mean, banana muffins are the type of thing that just about everyone has made at least once, and there are hundreds of other recipes floating around the blogosphere.  But, I have somehow misplaced my camera cord in all the packing and these are the only photos already loaded on my iPhoto, so...

I hope you like banana muffins!

As the story usually goes with banana muffins, I had overripe 'naners that were too far gone to even freeze, and instead of throwing them out (or more likely tempting another day on the counter) I decided to make some muffins.  I cut the recipe in half, and holy-jiggle-thighs am I glad that I did.  It took some self control to only eat one of these a day.  They were very dense and sweet, and I pretty much wanted one every fifteen minutes.

Banana Muffins


3-4 large bananas, mashed
1/2 cup sugar
1 slightly beaten egg
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups flour


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Set aside.  In another bowl, combine the bananas, sugar, egg and butter.  Mix in the flour mixture.  

Pour into prepared muffin tins, and bake for roughly 20 minutes.
