Overripe Bananas? Make Yummy Muffins.

How many times have you tossed out bananas because you didn't quite get to them before they turned brown and tasted, well, funky? Next time that happens to you, toss the bananas into muffin batter instead of into the trash. Overripe bananas make the most delicious muffins. Throw in some walnuts, top each muffin off with a raspberry and you have a real treat for breakfast. Muffins are incredibly easy to make. You can make the batter in minutes and they only take between 15-20 minutes to bake. Feel free to go bananas and add blueberries, blackberries, and/or any kind of nuts you want. You can't go wrong. Here's my recipe if you want to try. Enjoy.

Raspberry Banana Nut Muffins

• 2 large overripe bananas
• 3/4 cup sugar
• 1 tsp baking soda
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1-1/2 cup flour
• 1/3 cup melted butter
• A dozen or so raspberries
• 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

How to:
1. Mash the bananas with a wooden spoon.
2. Mix in the sugar and slightly beaten egg.
3. Add the melted butter. Blend.
4. Add all the dry ingredients and stir until well mixed. Fold in walnuts.
5. Put liners in a muffin tin and fill each liner 3/4 of the way up.
6. Plop one raspberry on top of each muffin (you can fold them into the batter but I like having the one on top for esthetics and so they don't get squashed). Having that burst of raspberry flavor in the muffin is really great. I wouldn't leave it out.
7. Bake for 15- 20 minutes (when top of cupcakes are brown, muffins are done).
