Banana Bread Mini Muffins

Banana Bread Muffins with Browned Butter Icing

So I work at home. I work for GoDaddy and they are nice enough to allow me to pretty much work from home all the time. I love it. I don’t have to drive 40 minutes away and sit in a desk where I am distracted by everyone around me. I can just wake up, take a shower, slip into my sport shorts (gym shorts?) and a t-shirt and go downstairs and start working. Its great, that is until my wife starts baking something that smells amazing!

Now there’s a disclaimer on this. I know I post a lot of desserts and a lot of breakfast sweets but we, my wife and I, pretty much live a low carb lifestyle. We usually eat low carb during the week then eat whatever, in moderation, on the weekend. I lost about 50 lbs. this way and have kept it off for 4 years. It’s the way to live if you want to feel real good.

Now back to the amazing smell that wafted into my office the other day. At first I was kind of confused that my wife was baking, in the middle of the day, in the middle of the week. What I didn’t realize was that we had a whole slew of kids over playing in the pool. I didn’t go to investigate. Not sure why. It probably had to do with work or some such thing. About an hour later she comes in with this banana bread mini muffin with frosting on the top and pops it in my mouth. It was amazing! It was light but packed with flavor. Don’t go overboard with the bananas otherwise the muffins will be heavy, and we don’t like heavy muffins.

    […] enjoyed yummy smash burgers outside in ¬†our jammies, a few games of skip bo, banana muffins (fat bombs for me) and a couple episodes of the Carbonaro Effect. Perfect […]

    The right amount of banana, I’m not big on them so I don’t like to use too much. Your recipes are the best! Always no fail, full of flavor, and easily adaptable for gluten free. Thanks so much!
