Start by taking 3 very ripe bananas and mash them with a fork. Mix with 1 cup sugar and let sit for 15 minutes.
*** True story: When Jessica was about 2 we would name objects and she would tell us what color they were. She knew her colors very well at an early age. One day Kevin said "banana" and Jess said " black"! We could not stop laughing because a) it was so cute and b) it was so true. At least in our house it is! ***
Next you add the following:
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs, well beaten...the eggs, not the kids!
1 stick butter, melted...I know, I know but it really is necessary. Mix well.
Add 2 cups flour and mix again!
Now we can have some fun! I ALWAYS add chocolate chips! You can also add pecans (my favorite but not the kids), walnuts, whatever you think will work! Sometimes I make a loaf, sometimes muffins*, sometimes both!
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 50 minutes. Do watch it as it can burn the bottom and sides quickly. Just sayin.
*muffins bake about 17ish minutes. Watch carefully. Enjoy!
