I don’t know if anyone else has this problem but bananas seem to ripen extremely fast on my kitchen counter. I get my chance to make lots of banana breads, muffins, waffles and other baked goods with banana puree. But I have found my favorite recipe.
Then in a large mixing bowl combine the banana puree with 1/3 of a cup of melted butter, one egg, and 1/2 cup of brown sugar.
In another bowl combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and flaxseed. Yes, flaxseed. My friend, Katie, is always touting how her North Dakota farmers raise the best flaxseed. Guess I should get on the Omega bandwagon!!
Slowly combine the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Then grab your favorite chocolate chips. Mine are by far Ghirardelli!
