If Life Gives you Mushy Bananas, Make MUFFINS (and add some chocolate!)

We always seem to have very ripe bananas sitting around.  We always buy bananas but none of us love them so they sit until they are brown and then I make muffins.

I've found this to be the simplest and tastiest recipe for yummy banana muffins.  I always add chocolate chips (kids call them chocolate muffins).

Banana Muffins (makes 12 muffins)
3 or 4 Large bananas, mashed
1/2 cup white sugar
1 slightly beaten egg
1/3 cup melted margarine or butter (I use a mixture of melted butter and applesauce to equal 1/3 cup)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour

Mix the mashed banana, sugar, egg and butter/applesauce together. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour. Mix wet and dry ingredients all together! Pour into greased muffin tins, and bake in 350 degrees F oven for approximately 20 minutes.

Best little helper EVER!

Worth the wait!
