“These are the ultimate banana muffins that leave you with a sublime satisfied Cheshire smile on your face. The key is to chop the ripe - yet firm bananas instead of schmusshing them. When you bite into one of these buttery muffins you get a rich smooth treat of banana chunks inside the muffin, that combined with the carob malt ball & macadamia nut topping...yummy. You really should use a little Pyrex custard cup and make a bakers dozen so you can have one all to yourself. This recipe started because my roommate Jenny was going to toss out two perfectly wonderful ripe bananas last night - so I said, No! I will make breakfast muffins for all of us! yeh - they loved them.”
