I reached a new high in parenting today. We had overly ripe bananas that had seen the end of their life – or so I thought. In passing I suggested the kids make banana muffins, knowing very well they had never made muffins but it might be a fun summer activity. Hallie and Hunter jumped quickly at the idea. I supplied the recipe, gave a couple tips and walked out of the kitchen.

I returned to a kitchen full of delicious muffins (we had enough ripe bananas to quadruple the recipe!) Not only did they make muffins, the dishes had been washed as well. This. Is. A. Game. Changer!!

I’m ready to throw all sorts of recipes at them this summer and see how they do!
