We often have som left over riped bananes we dont like to eat, and thats the case for this recipe too. Some love when the bananas are very ripe, I like mine best when the peel is slighty greesn in color.
… But when they are used in baking, they should wery ripe . When the peel l starts to get brown spots and become thin and flabby, the banana inside is perfect for a cake.

* If you don`t have buttermilk, you can easily make it yourself in only 10 minutes. Have the right amount of milk from the recipe in a bowl and add 3 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice. Let it rest on the couther for 10 minutes.
Then it time to make the muffins
Start by mash the banana and stir in the squeezed lemon juice, set aside.
In a large bowl mix all dry ingredients except sugar and brown sugar. Set aside.
Melt the butter in a saucepan and remove it from the heat. add buttermilk and canola oil. Set aside .
In a small bowl, whip eggs, brown sugar and sugar until slightly fluffy.
Pour in milk mixture and whip until well combined.
Pour the egg and milk mixture into the flour, all at once, and whip until just incorporated. Your muffins will have the best texture if the batter is not ower worked.
The batter looks smooth with a few lumps!
Fill muffin liners half full with batter. You can sprinkle on some chocolate chips, nuts or raisins in the muffins, if you like.
Fold the mashed banana into the remaining batter .
Fill the banana mixture on top of the batter in the liners, until just under the edges .
Poure the melted butter into the biscuit crumbs and sprinkle a good layer topping on top of eash miner. You can gently press the topping slightly into the batter, if you want.
Bake in the lower section of the oven at 410 F (210 C) degrees for 20 – 25 minutes, until they bouce back to when pressed lightly on top.
Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!
This is the last recipe for the muffins I gave to my son’s camping trip and I hope you will enjoy them as mush as we did.
