Easy Banana Muffins broken in half and on a blue and white cloth.

Hey Recipe Critic Readers! Chelsea from Chelsea’s Messy Apron. How was your holiday? I hope it was fantastic! I also hope you were able to eat all the cookies you possibly had time to make. I know we are a little bit over cookies at the moment at my home, but I’m sure that will change in about 1 day.

However, for now it’s muffins and other healthy foods that I’ve been craving to replace all that sugar from cookies! These muffins aren’t super healthy, but a lot better than cookies that’s for sure. They are super easy to make and a perfect way to use those old and ripe bananas sitting on your counter!

Enjoy! 🙂
