Whenever we have some overripe bananas in the office, I bring them home and make some muffins. I hate to see food go to waste!
- 1 1/2 cups plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 large bananas, mashed
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Coat muffin pans with non-stick spray, or use paper liners.
- Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
- Combine bananas, sugar, egg, and melted butter in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture, and mix until smooth. Optional: Add chocolate chips and/or walnuts, according to your heart’s desire.
- Scoop into muffin pans and bake in preheated oven. Bake mini muffins for 10 to 15 minutes, and large muffins for 25 to 30 minutes. Muffins will spring back when lightly tapped.
Isn’t it pretty? It’s yum too!
