Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • To decrease sodium, use unsalted butter.
  • Instead of muffins, bake in cake or loaf pans. Increase the bake time to 35-50 minutes, depending on the size of the loaf.  Bake until a toothpick or skewer can be inserted into the loaf and come out clean.
  • To add variety, add 1/2 cup chopped strawberries or other fruit, chopped nuts, or chocolate chips.
  • This is a great recipe to make with your kids. Have younger kids open and mash the bananas and mix. Have older kids measure the ingredients.
