Banana Bread Muffins

Make your favorite banana bread with a fraction of the bake time. No more uncooked centers, no more waiting an hour to taste that fresh baked goodness! I’ve been making this recipe with my kids for several years. Younger ones have a blast smashing the bananas with a potato masher and older ones get good practice measuring out these simple ingredients.
