Banana Muffins - Count Your Blessings

While Brandon was going to school at BYU, our Stake Relief Society president gave an excellent talk in Stake Conference about counting our blessings in which she shared how blessings can be found in the darkest of times. She used the analogy of black bananas, or those with lots of spots which are often avoided or thrown away, make the best muffins.

Mix together:
2-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 cup sugar

Combine and add all at once to dry ingredients:
3 or 4 mashed bananas (or 5 if you have that many)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup melted butter
2 beaten eggs
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

The batter will be thick. Bake 350 degrees about 20 minutes. Makes 14-16 muffins. (I collect over-ripe bananas in my freezer until I have enough for a batch.)
