Banana Muffins

Hey everyone, like I promised to be posting on a regular, I am back again. So I had a bunch of bananas which began to get ripe too quick. Besides, it’s not every time that I’d like to eat a banana. So I thought, instead of letting it go to waste why not make a few muffins. If it’s in a muffin it’s not going to go bad than when it’s an actual banana. But if your bananas are not fully ripe, just place it in a brown bag then a plastic bag to quicken the process. Banana muffins can be eaten any time but it is also a good quick breakfast.
