Banana Sour Cream Muffins

I guess I’ve taken up baking as a hobby-ish. I wouldn’t consider in a full-time hobby because me and baking are just becoming friends. When I was little my Nana (grandmother) always baked. Whenever we saw her she always had some sort of goody ready for us to eat.  I have great memories of baking with my Nana and always requesting her famous banana bread. Even when I was away at overnight camp and my parents came for visitors day my Nana always sent some banana bread along for me! We eat a lot of bananas in our house and I’m always buying lots of them. I purposely let some go brown so I can either freeze them for smoothies or to bake with them.

Yesterday, I was alone with the two kids and what better idea then to experiment in the kitchen! I thought I was a little crazy while I was baking but once the muffins were cooled we all dug in and enjoyed! Even Little Dude. He totally devoured an entire mini muffin.
