You know the old saying, “When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade”? Well, when life gives me over-ripe bananas, I make banana muffins. Don’t throw those bananas in the trash! Put them in the refrigerator (or the freezer) and when you have 30 minutes, make these muffins.
Measure the flour into a sifter or wire strainer. I used 1 cup of all purpose and 1/2 cup of whole wheat.
Add the chips to the dry ingredients and whisk. I just happened to have peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. You can use white chocolate, dark chocolate, walnuts, pecans, raisins, sunflower seeds - whatever you like with bananas.
At this point, I decided to peel the bananas onto a plastic cutting board. I also set the oven to 400 degrees.
They look fabulous, don't they? Perfectly domed tops, you can see the chips poking out of the muffins. I'll bet you want one. :)
