I love the smell of banana bread baking in the oven. It is reminiscent of my childhood when my mom would make fresh baked banana bread. The riper the bananas, the sweeter the taste. Keep scrolling for my spin on mom's traditional banana bread recipe. Hint, I made them into muffins and topped them with shredded coconut. Yum!
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large bananas, mashed
3/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup sliced almonds
2 Tbl shredded coconut
Preheat over to 350 degrees F. Coat muffin pans with non-stick spray. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Combine bananas, sugar, egg, and melted butter in a large bowl. Stir in almonds. Fold in flour mixture. Add almonds and mix until smooth. Scoop into muffin pans. Top with granulated sugar and shredded coconut.
Bake mini muffins for 10 to 15 minutes. Bake large muffins for 25 to 30 minutes.
These are so good. I find it hard to resist eating more than just one muffin. They are perfect to serve for brunches and family reunions.

However, I couldn't resist sharing with you my latest designs for editable text family reunion invitations.
