I can’t tell you how many banana muffin recipes I’ve tried. The thing is, I have a fabulous banana bread recipe from my grandma that with a few adjustments makes great muffins, but I always think I’m going to find something better.
Last time I tried a new banana muffin recipe my oldest son said, “Mom, don’t you have that good recipe of your grandma’s? That’s the best one. It has the best banana flavor.” So there you have it. I decided it was finally time to stop searching for something better and share the Best Banana Muffins with you.
