Kitchen Adventures: Bad Bananas

What do you do when your bananas are going bad?

My solution: I make muffins!

Instead of throwing out those brown bananas why not make something out of them.  Just because bananas aren't pretty little yellow pieces of fruit anymore, doesn't mean that they need to be thrown out.

For those of you who like to bake, you know there are so many variations for a single recipe.  Well chocolate chip banana muffins are no exception to this.  Most recently I used this recipe and the muffins turned out great. 

1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 eggs
3 ripe bananas
3/4 cup chocolate chips

One: Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl until they are well mixed.
Two: Pour into a greased muffin pan.
Three: Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (or until they are golden brown on top)

These muffins are great when served with tea!
