When I find my bananas getting too ripe I freeze them for later use. Just thaw them in the microwave when you want to use. Here is a recipe for chocolate chip muffins that uses one banana. They even taste healthy :-)

These were so good!! Brought them to the office and they were gone in a manner of seconds!! :) Used canola oil instead of butter and low-fat milk. Baked them for about 20 minutes in a 350F oven. Thanks! :)

My kiddos and I loved it! I made the following changes: 1 cup all purpose flour, 3/4 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup finely milled flax seeds and 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips. The muffins turned out slightly dense and just perfectly sweet (not too sweet). The kids enjoyed them for breakfast and snacks. Thanks for a great recipe!
