So over the past few months I’ve been on a search to find the perfect banana bread…and I think I’ve finally found it! If you have a better one send it my way, because I LOVE banana bread!
So after my little monkey went to bed last night I decided I needed to put our spoiled bananas to good use. I waited so patiently for the muffins to be done… and when the timer finally
wen’t off I was sooo excited! I ran and grabbed one
mitten and pulled those babies out. I think I was a little too excited, and to my dismay this is where the muffins ended up. It was a sad night.
LUCKILYYY I had made two extra loaves I had planned on giving away. In case you’re wondering that loaf below was NOT given away & was eaten by me. ;) My husband couldn’t fathom having all those muffins go to the trash, so he salvaged a few muffins and ate them right up!
