-- Bad Bananas, Oh SO Good! --

Everyone comes across this problem, you buy a bunch of bananas and before you know it half of them are speckled and a little too ripe. Instead of tossing them, try making some tasty banana muffins. My recipe follows.

2 1/4 cups of flour
1 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
4 mashed ripe bananas
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup oil*
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin pans with paper cups. Set aside.
In a large bowl mix the first 6 ingredient (dry). In a separate bowl, combine the bananas, milk, oil, eggs and vanilla. Add the dry mix one cup at a time to the banana mix until blended. Using an ice cream scoop, add batter to the prepared muffin pan. Fill about 2/3 of the way. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
