Scrumptious Banana Bread

We love it when friends, neighbors, or family drop in. Even if the house has a few toys scattered, last minute guests are a happy surprise.  While it's easy to keep some simple beverage choices on hand to offer guests, having a snack at the drop of a hat can be a challenge.  The item that I count on most to be available in a pinch is an altered version of my Grandma's banana bread. Overripe bananas seem to be ever present on my countertops, and as soon as I have three, a loaf or tray of muffins gets created and frozen for company. Muffins are great since they defrost in 30 minutes or so, and company can grab them and enjoy with only a napkin. This yummy recipe is also great for breakfast, a major crowd-pleaser with little ones and husbands too. Bring it to bible study, wrap it and bring to a friend, make it to enjoy with your family. Give those last three brown speckled bananas a chance to up their game.  Enjoy and repeat.
