Breakfast is one of my favorite meals. I may not make time for more than a bowl of cereal some days, but give me a plate of bacon, eggs, and really good toast and I’m a happy girl. But it’s not just about the breakfast basics. Some days I want something a little sweet like homemade pancakes or these Banana Bread Muffins. This recipe is a breeze to make and a great way to use up extra bananas when your youngest begs for them at the store and then eats like two!

Mike has this thing with banana bread. Every time I make a loaf he basically claims the whole thing. That was until the kids came along. Now our youngest forces him to share and I love it. Since little man has a thing for muffins I figured why not put them together? Now banana bread muffins are the house favorite. When they’re this easy to whip up, I don’t mind making them regularly.

If you want to gussy things up a bit you can add in some walnuts for banana nut bread muffins or chocolate chips (I like dark chocolate!) for chocolate chip banana bread muffins. Then watch these bad boys fly off the plate!
