banana muffins

so it's not exactly what's for dinner, but they may spoil your dinner you'll want to eat so many of them!

1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 large bananas, mashed coarsely
3/4 c white sugar
1 egg
1/3 c butter, melted
(1 tsp vanilla optional)

1. preheat oven to 350. grease muffin tin or line with paper liners
2. sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. set aside
3. mash bananas coarsely (so they are chunky, not smooth- this is key to really moist muffins)
4. in a large bowl, combine bananas with melted butter, sugar, egg (and vanilla)
5. fold in flour mixture and mix until combined. scoop into muffin pan
6. bake in preheated oven. mini muffins: 10-15 min, large: 25-30 (high altitude, like me: 20 min)

makes 12 large muffins
