Best Ever Banana Muffins

It's been too long since I posted a muffin recipe!  I have been on a muffin making BINGE, and, having made every single muffin recipe known to man (ie. every muffin recipe on this blog), I then realized my mom had included a recipe in our family cookbook entitled "Best Ever Banana Muffins" which I had never tried.

Best ever?  Tried never?

Somethin' doesn't jiiiive.

*taps toes and snaps fingers*

Now my little song and dance has got your attention, I promise to share the recipe, but first I need to tell you that the real show is tomorrow.  I have an exciting post lined up, it's not about food and I didn't write it.

Zzzzip! That's it. You won't get anything else out of me, but you'll have to come back on Friday and seeee.

Best Banana Muffins

In the meantime, I hope you have some ripe bananas loitering on your counter, because "best ever" and my mama don't  lie, especially when you throw in my "signature" streusel topping :)

Best Banana Muffins!
