So instead of going bananas, let's look at some kid-approved recipes with bananas:
Banana Muffins - 2 dozen large super moist muffins
¾ C. butter (1 ½ sticks softened)
1 ½ C. sugar
3 ripe bananas
4 T. sour cream
2 C. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
Cream butter in a large mixing bowl. Gradually add sugar. Beat in eggs, thoroughly.Sift together flour, soda, and salt; add gradually to mixing bowl. Mash bananas and beat into mixture. Add sour cream and vanilla and blend. Pour into lined or greased muffin tins until ¾ full. Bake 2350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
Note: If gluten is an issue, I have substituted gluten free 1 to 1 cup flour blend and these muffins turn out just right. I have also made lots of mini-muffins, too. All yummy!
Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Bites
Slice bananas into ¼" pieces
Arrange in ice cube trays or on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper
Spoon ¼ to ½ tsp. peanut butter onto banana slices
Freeze for about 2 hours.
Note: You can exchange any type nut butter for the peanut butter. You can also top each peanut buttered covered banana slice with another slice to make "sandwiches" if preferred.
|Looks like mine have a little more than ½ tsp of peanut butter! Extra yummy!|
