BANANA CARROT MUFFINS TIPS AND TIDBITS


As your bananas ripen, they become sweeter and bolder in taste.  As the banana ripens, it begins to have black spots on them.  

The riper they are, the black spots get bigger.  So it is essential for muffin recipes to use bananas with large black areas on the peeling, indicating they are very ripe.

When using carrots in a muffin recipe, it is essential to use fresh carrots, shredding them with some liquids released from them. 
 
I recommend using oil instead of butter to get moist and fluffy muffins.  If your recipe calls for butter, half the oil and butter in the recipe and use both.
