So instead of being a productive person on this, the first of my three days off, and do something like sort out Juliette's toys or clothes or clean the apartment, I decided to make muffins. It is productive in that now I've used those overly ripe bananas AND created a semi-healthy snack.
This recipe is so easy that I have to share it!
Take three ripe bananas and mash them up.
Add two cups of flour
One cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of baking powder
a bit less than 1/2 a cup of your favorite neutral vegetable oil
Mix well and fill muffin tins 2/3 with batter.
Place one chocolate square in each muffin center. Press it down a bit.
Let your toddler go crazy with nonpareils (those cute little sprinkles!). I just figured out that nonpareils are called that because it means "not the same" in French. Because they're all different colors, I guess. It can also mean "without equal", a little online digging has told me. It took me ten years in France to make the connection even though I've spoken the language that long already.
They are ooey-gooey when still warm. A little zap in the microwave the next day brings back the melty magic. Enjoy your virtual muffins.
