Banana Breakfast Muffins
This past weekend while we were hitting the Fleas Across Florida, I came upon something my husband has been wanting ever since this love of bananas and his need for potassium, a banana hanger! Don’t know how he walked right by it unless it was because it was something like we had never seen before, a monkey banana holder! It was marked $2 and when we offered a buck, the lady said sure As soon as I got home, I searched the net to see if I could find another but to no avail, so if anyone out there has one or has seen one, let me know……. He now sits proudly on our counter top holding a bunch of bananas which brings me to today’s recipe.
I still had just enough basic muffin mix (which I provided the link to here), to make these moist and tasty treats to go with our coffee in the morning and of course, there’s always ripened bananas in the freezer ready to be cooked up in our treats.
Speaking of coffee, yesterday was a trip to the store to buy a new coffee maker as ours said so long…like our microwave did a couple of weeks ago. Tired of having to buy today’s disposable appliances that you keep having to buy new, UGH! What ever happened to appliances that lasted?
As often as we eat our bananas, there always seems to be one that gets a little too mushy to eat on our cereal or on my sandwich for lunch. So the strays get to sit on the counter until good and ripe (the riper the better for flavoring nut breads and muffins), and then they get tucked away in deep freeze until needed in a recipe like today’s………..
- ½ cup butter
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 teas vanilla
- Dash of nutmeg
- ½ teas cinnamon
- 2 very ripe bananas, mashed, about a cup
- ½ cup milk
- 3 cups basic muffin mix
- Melt butter, let cool slightly.
- Add the beaten eggs, vanilla, bananas, and milk and mix well.
- Combine the basic mix with the nutmeg and cinnamon in a large bowl.
- Add the butter combination and mix just until combined.
- Spoon into paper lined muffin tins and bake in a 375 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until muffins test done with a toothpick.
- Let cool slightly in tins and turn out onto wire racks to cool completely before storing.
- This batch will make 1-1/2 dozen and freezes well.
