My kids LOVE bananas. Usually when I have bananas in the house, they don’t last long. But like everything else, there are times when they don’t get eaten and end up turning brown. And heaven forbid there be a spot on the banana peel! The other day I had 6 bananas that did not get eaten. I didn’t want to throw them away so I made the best banana muffin recipe ever…from scratch! Yep! Me, queen of the box mix, made banana muffins from scratch. Like, from flour and sugar and stuff! Not only was it super easy, but these are by far the BEST banana muffin recipe I have ever made!
