Flourless Banana Muffins

Normally, when overripe bananas are lying useless at home, people make banana breads. For some reason I’ve never been successful with breads and I’m not ready to make an attempt quite yet.

So what can I do to use up these bananas?

Banana muffins are the perfect answer to this, especially the ones I’m sharing today. Blender muffins are my favorite. They take the least effort and give amazing results. All it takes is a few bananas along with a couple other ingredients thrown into a blender and then poured into muffin tins to bake.

Fun fact: Bananas are botanically berries. Yeap! They belong to the same family as strawberries and blueberries.
