Expert Tips

For Banana Date Muffins, substitute chopped dates (don't toss with flour) for the chocolate chips; add 1/2 cup chopped nuts and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.

This recipe is a great way to use bananas that are getting a little too ripe. You may find you buy bananas just to make these muffins!
