This recipe is a quick, easy and  great way to use up those too brown banana’s sitting on the counter. I”ve linked up to This Weeks Cravings on The Daily Dish.

Bananas are probably one of the only fruits that are wonderful once they have gone past they’re use by date lol. I have always loved brown bananas. They taste so much better to me then when they are bright yellow, flavorless and hard.

Give me a soft browning banana any day. I love it when I find bags of them marked down on clearance at the grocery store. I always buy 2 or 3 bags.  The kids eat a few before they get too brown for them, some of them I may peel and put  into zip topped bag , freeze and use in smoothies. Others I leave  out on the counter to turn totally brown so I can bake with them.

I love making banana bread, banana cake or muffins with them.

  1. I love bananas also. Your muffins look great! It is a great idea to get rid of all the banana’s that are a little over ripe.

  2. I am definitely not a fan of the brown bananas to eat so they get baked into something every time. Your muffins look delicious! I am sure they are tender and moist with all those bananas and yogurt. And so healthy with only 1/4 cup oil!
