Banana Crumb Muffins

Muffins!

I don’t care what you say, muffins are absolutely an acceptable breakfast. And these banana crumb muffins? Oh boy… What a great way to start the day. Brew up a hot cup of tea, give me one of these muffins, and I’m a happy camper – unless it’s Monday. In which case I’ll need two cups of tea.

Banana Crumb Muffins

I get inspired to do my baking on weekend mornings. We’re up pretty early with Baby Boy, so while I feed him his breakfast I start to think about what I want to bake. Sometimes that inspiration comes from surprising places, like his baby food (really), other times it’s a matter of what we have on hand that I need to use up, like a few brown bananas.

Banana Crumb Muffins

I whipped these banana crumb muffins up during Baby Boy’s Saturday nap, and they were out and photographed before he was awake – I love easy recipes like that.

Don’t listen to Rachel the naysayers. Muffins can be, and indeed are, an acceptable form of breakfast. So the next time you have a lazy Saturday or Sunday morning coming up, grab yourself some overripe bananas, make these muffins, and enjoy with a big steaming cup of tea and your newspaper.
