Banana Muffins - Recipe

I had two pitiful looking bananas left on the counter and figured I had better do something with them. Why not make some muffins?
I just love muffins, any kind of muffin, blueberry, banana, chocolate chip, cranberry, cinnamon sugar…mmmm, yummy!

Muffins *swoon*

This is a recipe I found a few years back somewhere on the web.
The site I found it on gave credit to an old Bon Appetite magazine.
I have to say this recipe creates some of the best banana muffins.

The muffin pan I used is oversized and was my great grandmothers. My mom had this pan in their cellar; it was in a pile of stuff they were going to place in a yard sale. Needless to say, it became mine quite quickly.
Give them a try and see what you think.
