None of my family are huge breakfast eaters (at least in the morning) so I like to have something homemade that’s easy for them to grab.
One of the easiest ways to use over ripe bananas is in bread or in freezing for later use. If you see older bananas being sold at a great price at the grocery store, grab them, bring them home and freeze them!
So what was the verdict?
The muffins were a hit and we loved the streusel crumb topping. They also make a great snack for hungry teenagers!
If you’re feeling adventurous use an extra large muffin tin.

- In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
- In a separate bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and melted butter.
- Stir the banana mixture gently into the flour mixture just until moistened.
- Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

Save those overripe bananas for use in recipes by freezing them.
