Happy New Year! I hope everyone had an awesome break. I certainly did. But I have to admit, I was ready to get back into the groove.
Today’s post is about a delicious banana muffin creation. But first, speaking of creations, some big news! Ryan and I have made one of our very own creations -we’re having a baby! A little boy to be exact, and he is due in the early days of June. That’s why I’ve been away from ole SG lately. Unfortunately, I’ve had too many food aversions and very few cravings.
But one thing I’ve been looking forward too is getting together with a new friend who is also preggers. We got together for some tea this weekend, and I thought these muffins would be the perfect treat. And they were delicious!
These muffins take the cake. They are the best ones yet – even Ryan and baby agree.
TIP: The more ripe the bananas, the better.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
