This was (truly!) the easiest recipe I have ever made in all twenty-four years of my existence.
D.C. was hit with more than two feet of snow in some pockets of the city this weekend, and baking was one of the only things keeping me sane. Unfortunately, my past self deemed a small loot of potatoes more important to lug home instead of ingredients for a more complicated bake. These muffins took just 10 minutes to whip up – a mere fraction of the duration of Snowzilla. I would’ve killed someone this time yesterday as the Cabin Fever set in if it meant having access to a kitchen like the ones in Great British Bake-Off – all the ingredients a girl could need!
Alas, all we’ve got are items for muffins*. At least Google pulled through and Food.com didn’t disappoint (although I was skeptical of the recipe’s legitimacy ’til the moment I bit into the first muffin). These guys are keepers: a fruit serving and a sprinkle of chocolate! What’s not to love?
- 3large bananas
- 1⁄2cup white sugar
- 1⁄3cup melted butter

- Mash bananas.
- Add sugar and the slightly beaten egg.

- Stir in flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
- Spoon into medium size muffin pan lined with paper cups.
- Bake 20-25 minutes until a knife comes out clean.
*Consider this my formal pledge to document more photos of the ~*baking process*~ next time. Sometimes you’re trying to beat the clock ’til Meet the Press comes on, and before you know it, everything’s already waiting nicely** in paper muffin cups for baking. Smh. Next time!
**Seriously – they’re that easy! Done before you know it!
