Banana Pumpkin Muffins
My continuing saga to use up my pie pumpkins…….
I made pumpkin banana muffins on Saturday night. We had some lovely friends over for dinner and I always like to send them home with some baked goodie for breakfast the next morning.
Since I had just baked pumpkin number 3 of 6, I figured pumpkin muffins was the best thing to make.
I planned to make pumpkin muffins. My sweet friend asked if I was adding anything to it. Bananas? Yes, why not.
