Overripe, Brown Bananas? Make Muffins!!!

Overripe bananas... we all buy 5 or 6 bananas thinking we will eat them all before they get too ripe to eat but then realize a week later there are still 3 left! We dont want to waste the bananas, our hard earned money went into buying those! Why not make banana muffins? They taste sooo good especially right hot out of the oven! Try this recipe next time you have a few ripe bananas laying around :)
Banana Muffins

Prep time: 5 - 10 mins
Cook time: 20 mins

3 or 4 ripe bananas
1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1  1/2 cups flower
Pinch of salt
Chocolate chips (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a large mixing bowl mashed the bananas and mix in the melted butter
3. Mix in the sugar, egg and vanilla
4. Add baking soda, baking powder and salt and mix
5. Mix in the flour and add the choc chic (optional)
6. Grease the muffin pan or use muffin liners
7. Spoon batter into the muffin pan 
8.  Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until tops are browned and toothpick comes out clean

Tip!*** To save some money, buy some of these ingredients in bulk @ the bulk barn or other bulk stores! I buy my chocolate chips and vanilla extract here.

Remember, the key to cooking is having fun :) Cooking can be very relaxing and can help to relieve stress. I seem to want to cook most when I am stressed.
