One of the very first recipes I made when I was younger was banana bread. I loved peeling the bananas, smashing them in a bowl, dumping and stirring in the rest of the ingredients and just making something so easy and delicious. Everyone I offered it to always seemed to love it (which made me feel good). Those early experiences are probably one of the reasons I loved baking so much. Even as a kid, I found that when people responded positively to my cooking, it made me want to cook even more. The same is true today.
As long as you have ripe, sweet bananas, this is a fool proof recipe, even for people who rarely bake. I adapted my original recipe for muffins, which I find are more appealing for little hands, and added chocolate chips as a special treat. I guarantee the same great feeling I still have offering these to friends and family will happen for you too!
