These Juicy Banana Muffins are the perfect way to start your day! Packed with flavor and nutrients, these muffins will give you the energy you need to tackle your day.

Use your bananas right

Let your bananas ripen until the skin is black and really soft.  They look terrible but have so much more flavour than their yellow and slightly under ripe partners.  If you are not ready yet to make the muffins peel and mash them up and freeze the pulp until such time as I am ready to bake. 


Freezing your muffins

Banana muffins freeze beautifully so there is no excuse to not have some freshly made muffins on hand when those unexpected visitors pop in. Tu serve, simply unfreeze at room temperature and bake them for a few minutes in the oven.
