I had three overripe bananas on the counter. Since LC is heading back to college tomorrow and JD is heading back to Springfield, I thought I’d make some banana muffins. I asked LC if he wanted chocolate chips or pecans in them. He said both.
The muffins are cooling on the counter right now. One is already gone. So I’m not sure any of these will actually make it on the road with my traveling boys. But that’s OK if they enjoy them here also.
