What to do with off bananas

Bake with them of course!

I really like bananas, but we often can’t eat them quick enough without them going off. So our options are usually either running backwards and forwards to the shops to buy bananas every other day, or otherwise buy a big bag… and the last few go off.

But for the first time I got smart, and decided to bake some muffins with them. May as well put them to good use, and make something gross and mushy into something yummy. It took about 5 minutes to mix up and then just threw it into the oven for 20 minutes. I even got a bit adventurous and threw in a bunch of chocolate chips – I think it made all the difference!

4 medium ripe bananas

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg, lightly beaten.

1/3 cup of oil

1 1/2 cup flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp bicarb

pinch of salt

chocolate chips!

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Mash bananas. Add sugar, eggs, oil. Add sifted dry ingredients. Mix until it comes together (mixture will still be lumpy), stir in choc chips. Spoon into greased muffin tray and bake for 20 minutes.

I got about 15 out of this recipe 🙂
