Rotten Banana Muffins


I am back in Austin after a short trip with my family to Fort Davis, Texas. What’s left of the bananas we took on the trip turned black, so of course that means it’s time to bake some of “those rotten banana muffins,” as my husband likes to call them.

Why? Overripe fruit is the sweetest. These bananas are too ripe to eat out of hand, but they are perfect for baking. Next time you have some bananas that have gone bad, don’t throw them out. Bake something with them. (Or peel them, cut them up, and freeze them for smoothies.)
