Mountain of 'Naners

Well, I'm at it again. Baking, that is. You see, it has just been far to hot in our little home to even think about turning on the oven. But then last week, it cooled off and I jumped back in there with determination.

But first, I have a confession to make. I can not seem to come home from the grocery store with the correct amount of bananas. Ever.

So when a cool day came, I emptied my freezer (guests had begun to comment on the number of 'naners in there) and this is what I faced:

So I broke out my favorite banana muffin recipe and got to work. (You may remember that I blogged about it before. If you haven't tried it yet, check out the recipe.)

It's been a while since I've blogged a good step-by-step, so here come lots of pictures:

I gathered my ingredients...

got mixing...

added a bit of vanilla soy milk...

and, of course, a healthy dose of mashed 'naners!

Next I stirred in the dry ingredients...

and the batter was ready to go!

I filled my new mini muffin tray (thx, Mom!) with the batter and impatiently waited for my oven to pre-heat.

Here's my new mini muffin tray just waiting to go into the oven.

Meanwhile, I thawed the bananas some and bagged them up to re-freeze in 1 cup portions.

And here are my darling mini muffins!

Aren't they just the cutest?


Happy Baking!
