I don't know about you, but it seems like I can never finish a bunch of bananas before they turn brown. By then they're way too sweet to be palatable for me, but over the past year I've found a little trick for using them. I always make sure to keep a box of banana bread mix on hand for these situations. Even though the recipe on the box doesn't call for it, I've been known to mash one or two of them up and drop it right in the batter. Not only does it add to the flavor, but I find that it adds a little extra moistness to the muffins as well. I've also added them to blueberry muffin mix. Especially if you have a busy schedule, these are easy to whip on at the start of the week, making for a nice snack or quick breakfast during the week.
