Recipe for Banana Bread – Banana Mini Muffins

Try this delicious recipe for banana bread – banana mini muffins!

recipe for banana bread - Banana Mini MuffinsOne of the boys’ all time favorite snacks is banana mini muffins.  We make them quite often and while they usually disappear quickly, sometimes I make an extra batch to keep in the freezer.  That way, we can pull out a few at a time, let them thaw or put them in the toaster oven for a few minutes for a warm, delicious treat.

Banana Mini MuffinsOver the past few months, I have really worked on keeping my fridge organized.  I have talked about storing New Year’s Eve snacks, keeping leftovers fresh, and even cleaning up my hubby’s work fridge and wrapping cloth diapers to make them waterproof.  Something I have avoided, however, is my freezer.  I don’t know why, but I do not like organizing my freezer.  I like having it organized, and protecting my food from freezer burn, but somehow it is just easier to open the door, throw something in, and forget about it.  But when I actually want something that I know is in the freezer, I have to dig and dig and fight with the toddler as he wants to pull everything out.  I gave it a mini makeover, so I could store lots of these Banana Mini Muffins inside! This is the perfect recipe for Banana Bread!
