One of my favorite things to do in the cold winter months is to fill my home with the sweet smells of hearty baked goods!
What I don't like to do is throw away perfectly good food, and for some reason, bananas always seem to be at the top of the "throw away" list.
It didn't take me long to realize that banana muffins and banana bread are the perfect solution to over ripened bananas that have seen better days.
My family loves this recipe baked as muffins, but you can also pour the batter into a prepared loaf pan for an amazing banana bread too.
I hope you love them as much as we do!
