When Life Hands You Rotten Bananas…

In general, I eat 3 fruits on most days of the week.  Normally, for ease of carrying to class and a little longer shelf life, I eat a lot of apples and bananas.  As my third fruit each day, I normally choose fresh berries, pineapple, or melon to add some variety.  Since I only like to go grocery shopping once a week, I buy the greenest bananas I can find.  That way, I have better odds of eating them before they go bad.  But I have to admit that part of me gets really excited when exactly 3 bananas go bad before I am able to eat them, because my banana bread recipe requires exactly 3 almost rotten bananas!

Both this week and last week, I ended up with 3 brown spotted bananas on my kitchen counter. (Why my summer internship is interfering with my fruit intake might need to be explored in a future blog…)  I actually decided to make them in to muffins this time instead of bread so I could eat one either as part of a quick grab-and-go breakfast or for a yummy mid-morning snack.  The chocolate chips I had laying around also proved a fun little addition.

Next time you find yourself in the same situation, just do an internet search to find a recipe that suits your taste and combines some baking staples you might already have in your cupboard!  Enjoy!!
