Some food combinations go better together than others. Bananas + Caramel are a match made in heaven and pair beautifully together. I made these incredibly moist and flavourful banana muffins and topped them with a sinfully sweet ribbon of homemade caramel. So so good.
If you have brown bananas wasting away on your countertop or in your freezer, try this recipe and use them up. The browner the banana, the sweeter it will be. Plus, they’ll be super easy to mash up.
The bananas I buy at our grocery store are usually green and I have to leave them sit a few days before we can eat them. That’s one downside to this recipe is that you really should wait till the bananas are nice and ripe. I’m sure you could still try and use them, but they’ll be less sweet and harder to mash up.
Try one of these Caramel Banana Muffins for breakfast or for a satisfying afternoon treat. This recipe makes one dozen so you’ll have some to share if you like.
