A Smashing Recipe - Bananas at Their Best

In a family of 5, everyone has their favorites and often they are different from one another. However, this is one recipe that is loved equally by all of us. This can be baked in a loaf pan to make bread as well, but muffins are faster to bake and therefore more popular at my house.

Smashing Banana Muffins

1 stick of butter
1 C. sugar
1 egg
1 Cup mashed bananas (about 3 bananas)
½ tsp vanilla
1 T water

1 ½ C flour
1 tsp. baking soda
Pinch salt

½ cup pecans, optional

Mix softened butter with sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Add mashed bananas, water and dry ingredients. Pour into muffin cups (about 2/3 full) and bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until lightly brown.

Happy Valentine's Day! Dinner will be homemade chicken pot pie with homemade carrot cake for dessert. My sweetie's favorites.

ummmm sounds wonderful! As far as I'm concerned pecans are never optional! They are included in every recipe I can think of to use them.
Happy Valentines Day!

I make banana bread but haven't done the muffins. Great idea for a quick breakfast. Our family of 5 would appreciate these in the morning I'm sure.

I like banana anything (as well as chocolate anything) so it's all good!

This sounds yummy, and looks easy too. I've never made homemade banana bread or muffins. I will have to give this a try.

I will post my cinnamon crisps receipe on Tuesday.

Have a great week!!
