Banana Muffins Recipe

Banana Muffins

My family loves bananas, but sometimes I grab a few more than I think we can eat so I can make my fabulous Banana Muffins. I actually used the Banana Bread recipe, but only baked for 20 minutes instead of 50 minutes. I actually made 12 muffins and used an 8″ round cake pan to cook what was left over. So when I was done I had 12 perfect muffins and 1 banana bread cake.
