It all started when I was drawing up my grocery list and noticed that the only fruit remaining in the fruit basket was this lonesome chiquita banana, the peel almost covered with black spots, not too ripe but not something that my kids would want to eat. All I had to do was peel it and eat it and the story would be finished. But no! There is something about over ripe bananas that triggers this manic urge to bake with them. Why waste it when you can taste it I say!
When life gives you lemons there are tons of things you can make with them, but when it gives you over ripe bananas the only thing you should do is bake some yummy banana muffins that are healthier because you replace refined flour with whole wheat, butter with coconut oil and throw in some yogurt for good measure! Add some chocolate chips and you can win the hearts of your little ones!
Psst!Thanks to the cocoa and choco chips that masked the strong aroma of bananas, the little ones gladly ate them without a fuss. If you are a crazy mom who likes to sneak in fruits & veggies into baked goodies for her kids then you know what I'm talking about.
