Rotten Bananas ? Make Banana Bread Muffins!

I've been up since 4:30 am. Not because this is my normal wake up time, but my body just told me "get out of bed, you had enough sleep". It's funny, because if I had to go to work, I'd be sleeping til 8:01 and already 1 minute late for work.

There is so much to do in a day when you're a SAHM. People really don't believe this, but all I have to say is "Come, spend a day with me, your job starts before everyone wakes, and it ends right when everyone is asleep"

Ok, so what am I doing at this time ? Well i have these bananas sitting on my counter top that need to be turned into bread before it goes bad. Rakiem will really appreciate a fresh baked slice of banana bread for breakfast, and Olivia will have it for snack time today.

this pic matches my layout, totally a coincidence!
I'm off to bake!

Banana Bread Recipe (recipe here)


  • 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour


No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl.

Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla.

Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in.
Add the flour last, mix.
Pour mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour. (I did muffins, hoping that  they'd bake faster)

Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and serve.
Here it is, took about 30 minutes in the muffin pan :)
