• Mighty Muffins!

    Muffins with this ingredient list definitely deserve at least one exclamation point after its name.  These things need to come with capes.  If you are like me and never have 6 bananas sitting around long enough to ripen for baking, ripen them in the oven the day you need them or in a brown paper bag the night before.
