Bananas are something that are found in many Amish kitchens. While most produce found in Amish homes is grown on site, fruits are a different matter.
As more and more Amish homemakers shop in traditional supermarkets non-traditional fruits like bananas, mangoes, and oranges are becoming more popular. So where is there not to love about some simple, delicious "banana muffins."
Yum! The recipe was featured in The Amish Cook's Baking Book. One of our readers, Sarah, made the recipe, so I'll share the photo below. This recipe is simple and makes for a great breakfast on the run.
Slather it with butter for extra points!:) Yum! The recipe can be doubled easily. And the muffins can be frozen for eating at a later date.
