We eat a lot of bananas but nevertheless, there are always a couple that get too rip before we get a chance to eat them. These over rip bananas are a perfect excuse to make banana muffins, even if you, like me, are challenged in the kitchen.
I have the easiest recipe for banana muffin ever. No electric beater or flour sifting crap needed. Just one bowl, a few ingredients and two minutes of your time (plus of course the 20 minutes it takes to bake them).
Earlier this week my little helpers and I were mixing together our ingredients for these muffins when I realized I was out of eggs. I had heard about substituting applesauce for butter or oil, so I wondered if there was something that I could use for eggs. I called my mother-in-law. She is the only family member I know who actually bakes, I obviously come by my lack of baking skills naturally.
Anyhoo, My MIL said mayonnaise can be used as a substitute for eggs, which makes sense since it is made from eggs. She then suggested I use Miracle Whip instead, not sure if that was because I’m fat or because it tastes better…but either way, the muffins turned out amazing with that tangy zip of Miracle Whip!
So, next time you wanna bake something bu are out of eggs, remember the mayo tip or just try substituting to add a little yummy kick! One heaping tablespoon equals one egg.
So, here is my top secret, super yummy Lazy Mom’s Banana Muffin recipe!
