Last night when I was cleaning off the counter I noticed my bananas were getting a little ripe. This afternoon I decided to make some banana muffins. I couldn’t find my muffin tins so I put in a pan. They smell amazing and the batter was so moist.
I’m including this as stellar because my last attempt was anything but. I found an easy recipe online with coconut flour and when it was mixed up it did not look right. After it baked they were hard as rocks. I was so disappointed because it’s not like I have extra bananas on hand to try again. With this recipe I used my immersion blender and blended the bananas until smooth. And it used a lot less flour.
After I set them on the counter to cool I thought of how often my Dad would pass cookies cooling on the counter and he wouldn’t wait he would snatch one anyway. My Mom would yell out I hope you burn your tongue. It also reminded me of how my Dad called banana loaf banana cake. If I made these for my parents I would have had to lie and tell them it’s normal flour. They were not ones to try new things. If it tastes the same they wouldn’t know.
Sometimes cooking is hit and miss. As I’m typing this my hydro flicked off and on. Timer won’t work if the microwave had to restart. Outstanding…sarcasm
