Easy Banana Muffins

Super moist and flavourful banana muffins with a festive decoration

What to do with all those over ripe bananas? Do you also find yourself asking this question again and again? I personally hate throwing away food and so I always try to find different ways to use them. Today I have a great easy recipe for you to use up those over ripe bananas in a very yummy way!

Before I get started with the recipe, I just want to give you one more tip that I have been doing quite some time now and that is very simple, but I also think it is quite clever :) For a long time I was using my over ripe bananas right away and so sometimes I found myself in a situation where we had still some banana muffins or banana bread left over, and I already needed to make another one, as I had some bananas going bad again. So I thought, why wouldn´t I try to freeze them and see if that works and it does! Just peel the skin off, grab a freezer bag, and freeze the bananas for later. When you are about to use them take them out and de-frost in room temperature or in a microwave. Strain the excess water if needed and they are ready to be used.

If you love banana bread and banana cakes, you will love these moist and cinnamony banana muffins. 

Happy Baking lovelies!
