Tastemakers Presents: Banana Nut Muffins

Posted by on Tue, September 9th, 2014 at 12:00 pm

Over at SwagCentral, the Indian summer is making us wilt (thank goodness for central air). Unfortunately, the same goes for the bunch of bananas I got only a couple days ago. They’re already very spotty and brown! That’s why I’m glad to introduce our next Tastemaker, Emily from Rocky Mountain Savings! Emily takes saving to new heights from her abode in Denver, CO, and loves to share ways to save money and get freebies. Make sure to stop by her blog and say hello!

Her awesome recipe for banana nut muffins can save my sad, overripe fruit and turn into yummy snacks to share with the whole office. Even if you’re like Emily and live in a cooler climate, these babies are simple to make and a delicious way to welcome the fall season. Read more here…

Tell us, what’s your favorite way to use up extra or very ripe fruits?
