Breakfast Banana Muffins

I really love bananas.
I think they are almost the perfect food.
They are chock full of vitamins and minerals.
It has a cool outer peel, so if you get the outside dirty, you can still peel it and eat it.
Sometimes if you get greedy like me you have extra around your house.
Sometimes those extras get a bit over ripe.
When that happens, I chuck them in the freezer, skin and all.
Yes, they turn black. That is fine though, the inside is still good.
When I get five or so, I take them out of the freezer and lay them on my counter with a paper towel under them. (for some reason when they are frozen they get watery)
When they have thawed, I remove the peel and use them as if they were fresh.
So now you can make this recipe with your fresh or frozen bananas.
What ever you prefer.
