I’m not a huge fan of bananas but my boyfriend is so I think he’d love these, and we always have over ripe bananas every week when I buy them for him x

This sounds tasty, and its so simple to bake. We are always left with overly ripened bananas in our house. We will have to give this recipe a try next time! Thanks for sharing.

Looking at the muffins, they look a lot like Banana bread. If that is so, then I know I would like these. Anything else with banana’s in them, then I tend to avoid.
