Do you know the difference between good banana bread muffins and great banana bread muffins. Let me share it with you – it is how moist your bread is. Moist banana muffins melt in your mouth and the great ones are over-the-top moist.
In the learning process, I found out how to get that moisture in my muffins. It is so simple. Just use the bananas that your kids won’t even get near. You know, the ones with dark mushy spots. These over-ripe bananas have fully developed sugars and their soft texture makes the best banana muffins.
Warm from the oven, the homemade banana bread muffins are a special treat. From classic banana bread to versions with added dry fruits, nuts, chocolate chips, these muffins turn out moist and sweet every single time.
