On substitutions

Bananas I had, aplenty.
Sugar was there, for sure,
No eggs, no vanilla
No baking powder.
Yet muffins I would make!

For eggs, use mayo;
Vanilla flavored creamer;
Baking mix is self-rising!

2 cups mashed bananas (about 3 - 4 if they're small)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup mayonnaise (trust me)
1/2 cup vanilla flavored coffee creamer
2 cups baking mix

If your bananas aren't ripe enough, put them in the microwave for a couple of minutes then mash away.

Too many bananas to use right away? Peel and freeze. The freezing also brings out more liquid from the bananas, so adjust your recipe accordingly.
