Banana Muffins

Did you know that Jonathan Lipnicki is 21 years old now?

Who the heck is Jonathan Lipnicki?

The human head weighs 8 pounds.

Oh…..that kid from Jerry Maguire!

There was a story about him NOW on Yahoo.  The human head may weigh 8 pounds, but I’m more interested in that SIX PACK!!  What?!?!

The secret to his rockin’ abs??

Banana Muffins

Okay, that’s totally not true.  But it worked as a segue!!  ;)

Banana Muffins

Recipe from Brown Eyed Baker

Ingredients:

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3-4 ripe mashed bananas

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder.  Set aside.  In another bowl, add the sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla.  Beat together to mix.  Stir in the mashed bananas to your wet ingredients.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet.  Stir just until blended.

Line your muffin tins with paper liners.  Divide the batter into the liners.  Bake the muffins for about 25 minutes until the tops are golden brown.  Test for doneness with a toothpick to see that no crumbs are attached.  Transfer muffins to a wire rack and cool slightly.

Makes about 15-18 muffins.  Serve warm or cooled.  Serve for breakfast or dessert.

I prefer my banana muffins for breakfast, before I hit the gym to work on my own 6 pack abs!  Or before I sit in front of a computer for 10 hours.  One or the other I’m sure.  :)
