Best banana muffin recipe ever

See also

No kidding -- these are the best banana muffins you will ever eat! Deliciously moist, wonderfully tasty, and with an amazing banana flavor. If you’re looking for a wonderful recipe for breakfast, lunch, or a snack, here is one you will absolutely want to try. You will never want to make another banana muffin recipe again – guaranteed!

Unless you eat a lot of bananas, you are probably tossing out a few at the end of each bunch. You can use them to make this recipe and so many other banana recipes that require ripened bananas (see the recipes at the end of this article).

Actually, if you want ripe bananas immediately and don’t have any on hand, go to any of the larger grocery stores. Each store usually keeps a few ripe ones on hand for sale. Or, if you want to ripen your bananas within a day, put them in a paper bag, stick in an unpeeled apple, fold over the top, and you will have ripened bananas within a few hours (the apple emits a gas that speeds the ripening process).
