Gigantic Banana Muffins



I had 5 overripe bananas in my fridge just daring me to come up with a way not to throw them away. I found this very easy recipe for banana muffinson a cute blog called Cat Can Cook. The recipe called for 3 to 4 bananas, and I used 5. I added a teeny bit more butter and I added 1/3 cup of organic wheat bran into the mix, just to create the illusion that these muffins would be good for me.

I used one of those large sized muffin tins and filled each muffin about 3/4 full. They puffed up nice and high and smelled so good that Andy's son Tom got out of bed! That was pretty flattering. I ate one for my brekkie with a little butter and it was delicious!

I love the way you always add a little more. Especially when it's garlic. But adding one extra banana is also excellent. The pictures of them are gorgeous, too. Hope you had a great Xmas!!

I wonder what would've happened if I added a bunch of garlic to the banana muffins? Some day I am going to make one hot mess of a dish that has all the ingredients I love. Bananas, pasta, olive oil, garlic, potatoes, smoked paprika, brussels sprouts. Ugh. I think I need to throw up.
