When my brother came to visit last weekend he brought me a fairly large zucchini from a farm he works at outside of Philadelphia. I roasted some of it for the twins by just adding some olive oil and salt. I decided to grate a cup of the zucchini I had on hand and add it to my Banana Muffin recipe that I acquired from my mom years ago. Every time I make these they remind me of when I was young and my mom would make her banana bread. I remember when there was a fresh baked loaf in the house, I would cut a piece (or two), warm a slice up and spread some butter on it; simply delicious.
I have always had a love for baking and more importantly baking for others. Everyone always love receiving bake goods. Who doesn’t, right? There is something so satisfying with every bite of a sweet, moist treat that makes me smile. A simple gesture of sending a basket of fresh baked goods to someone can just brighten someones day. I usually always make more to send to my family or for my husband to take to his office. In certain recipes such as this, I love to make an extra batch and freeze it. Its great to have on hand should last minute guests arrive and you don’t have time to bake.
The twins love bananas. We always have them in the house. At least once a day they are having a banana. So when I had some bananas that needed to be used I decided to bake these. These are moist and satisfying treat for breakfast or with some vanilla ice cream for dessert. This recipe can be made as muffins or as bread.
