My husband described these muffins as “Five kinds of awesome.” Nate and I just sampled one of these muffins. Boy Howdy! Were they yummy! I couldn’t stop mmming! I don’t know about you but I get pretty bored with banana bread. I have 3 more bags of bananas all mashed and measured sitting in the freezer. Yes, I’m that organized! I love banana bread but I just get bored with it and always make a double batch so we can either freeze one loaf or give it away/take it to work. I saw this recipe on Bridget’s The Way the Cookie Crumbles blog. I couldn’t resist! The original source is epicurious.com
I strongly suggest you make these. I plan on bringing these to my next large gathering.
