"The Best" Banana Bread (or Muffins!)

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by SilentCricket

Okay, another banana bread recipe...But maybe the other ones don't have at least one ingredient that this one does...My family loves the muffins from this recipe...especially when I make mini-muffins! (I usually halve the recipe!) Makes 4 loaves or 60 muffins

Easy to follow recipe. Cut the recipe down to one loaf, used two bananas, used 1/2 cup honey & 1/2 cup brown sugar, whole wheat flour, and honey mead instead of water. So delicious without being too sweet!
