Only One Ripe Banana?
Bananas are delicious. I enjoy them sliced up and added on top of frozen yogurt, while my husband loves adding them to his cereal. We also love making banana smoothies and milkshakes. Recently, we bought a bunch of bananas and ate all but one rather quickly. It sat out on the counter ripening for a few days.
As a fun surprise, my son and I decided to make homemade banana muffins. However, we had two problems: I didn't have enough butter on hand and I only had one banana.
Problem solved! This recipe doesn't need butter or milk, only requires one large banana, and it is simple and easy to make! Whip up a batch this weekend for a delicious breakfast or snack that the family will love!

- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 2/3 cups flour
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Cut sheets of aluminum foil into squares and line muffin pan. (You can use cupcake liners instead if you have them on hand.)
- In a small bowl, mash the banana.
- In a separate mixing bowl, combine the sugar, oil, and eggs. Beat thoroughly.
- Stir vanilla and mashed banana into the sugar mixture.
- Add salt and baking soda. Mix well.
- Slowly beat in the flour.
- Pour the batter into muffin cups, about 3/4 full.

Banana muffins are best served warm with a little butter. For a sweet twist, add a little cinnamon sugar.
