Dear eggless banana bread muffins,

I’ve decided that you, banana bread muffins, will be my thing.

You know, the one thing that a person always makes and it’s always good and everyone likes it. My thing.

It only makes sense because I love – OK, am obsessed with – bananas. I buy them in bulk meaning I have them around all the time. It also means that I always  have the right amount of bananas at the right amount of ripeness for banana bread every week. And every week I try to perfect the recipe.

This week I hit a road block: no eggs. But a quick search later, I ran into this recipe so I thought I’d give it a shot.

It’s not perfect enough to be “my thing” quite yet, but I’m a fan of these babies. Dense but very light and fluffy, I ate five almost immediately with a tall glass of iced coffee.

So the perfecting process continues. But worry not eggless banana bread muffins: You were a hit in the office. And in my tummy.

Love,
A
