What should you make with extra bananas?
I love the idea of weekend baking, but in practice I find that it’s often more trouble than it’s worth. Ingredients end up strewn all over my kitchen and it creates even more dishes to do…
But ever since my daughter started solids we always seem to have leftover bananas around. So. Many. Bananas! My husband puts them in his smoothies sometimes, but I’m no help in using them up – I’m banana intolerant! So I’m always looking for easy recipes to whittle down my freezer stash of mushy bananas.
These blender muffins are the perfect solution. They’re easy to make – just blend! – and rely heavily on bananas to use up my stash. They freeze well so I can throw a few in my daughter’s lunchbox and it’s just as easy to make “grown up” full-sized muffins as it is to make mini ones since the bake time is the same.
Plus, they contain no added sugar, so I can feel good about giving them to my daughter (or my husband!) often.
What’s your favorite way to use up extra bananas?
