These are our best ever banana muffins.

This is such a great way to use any extra ripe bananas, but I will also buy bananas at the beginning of the week to make sure I can make them for a weekend breakfast.

They are very quick to make and an all-time family favourite that I will make at least once a month. They also freeze really well if you have any left!
