Do you have bananas on your counter to use up? These Butterscotch Banana Muffins are the perfect breakfast…or as a snack for a housewarming party. It all depends what happens first. Make sure you keep reading to get to the fun housewarming party that these muffins are for.
Muffins are the perfect comfort breakfast food. They are easy to make up the night before and to grab on your way out the door. We always have bananas, either on the counter or in the freezer, so I have to keep coming up with new banana muffins to make for my kids. Although, I really don’t mind making these Banana Bread Muffins all the time.
The other day I cleaned out my baking cupboard. We have this corner cupboard that I keep trying to shove cake mixes and chocolate chips into. It has three shelves. The bottom shelf has all our spices on it…basically all the things I don’t use because let’s face it…I don’t cook dinner very often. The other two shelves are seriously overflowing with baking supplies. One can never have too many sprinkles or chocolate chips. I am prepared to bake at all times. The problem is that I had started to shove those baking ingredients onto the bottom spice shelf too. It was kind of annoying to my hubby because he couldn’t get to the grilling spices or the salt and pepper.
I decided that it was time to organize the baking supplies before it started taking over another cabinet. Do you know that I found candy from last year in the very back? Apparently I bought some coconut kisses last Easter and totally forgot that they were in there. I know! I am so upset that I wasted an entire bag of great candy.
It got me a little worried for the day when we decide it’s time to move into another house. Who knows what things I’m going to find?
Today I have a great muffin to share for my good friend Ashton. You might know her better as Something Swanky and for her awesome poke cakes. She and her family moved to a house last weekend. I can’t imagine packing up everything and moving again. We have moved at least 7 times since my husband and I got married and it is always a crazy thing to do.
A group of Ashton’s blogging friends and I wanted to stop in and say Hi and bring her food to help out, but unfortunately we all live in different states making that kind of impossible.
So, today we are having a virtual housewarming party for her. Make sure you check out the links at the bottom to see all the great party food we have today. I found a whole bag of butterscotch chips when I was cleaning, so I made some Butterscotch Banana Muffins to share with Ashton.
Girl, I wish we lived closer, so I really could bring you muffins. I’m sure you could use a coffee and muffin break from unpacking all those boxes.
