Cooking with Crunchy: Banana Muffins

Banana Muffins RecipesOne of my absolute guilty pleasures is banana bread. It’s a great way to use bananas that are too mushy too eat. Bananas that are super mushy are disgusting to eat, but make the most delicious banana bread. Did you know that if your bananas are ready to use for breads or muffins, but you aren’t ready to make them you can actually freeze the bananas! Buy the bananas that are on clearance in your produce department to save big bucks, freeze them, and defrost them 2 hours before you are ready to bake!
