I make banana bread or banana bread muffins quite often, primarily because it’s an easy extra snack I can take to work with me. It’s quite nice to open my lunch box around 1 or 2pm and find a slice of banana bread or a muffin there, in addition to the actual lunch. Makes my lunch breaks that much more enjoyable!
If you have kids, they will surely appreciate a banana bread muffin in their lunch box, too!
This is a very simple and reliable recipe that I use all the time with simple ingredients found in any house. The muffins turn out great every time!
I like to use very ripe bananas that are very dark on the outside and already so soft that it’s effortless to mash them. Baking in a muffin pan gives each muffin a nice, darker crust which is delicious to munch on! Sometimes, I add chopped apples to the batter – makes these muffin even yummier!
