Banana Bread Muffins: Hawaiian Style

Banana Bread Muffins Hawaiian Style Bite

Banana Bread-Chicken in Bananas

We have an abundance of bananas growing on our trees and Pepper decided to whip up these Hawaiian style, banana bread muffins in an effort to use a few bananas before the chickens decide to feast on them.

I really need to stay out of the kitchen when I smell her baking. It is really dangerous, she get’s inspired and my taste bud go up the palm tree and back. I can only imagine what she will make when all the fruit trees start fruiting.

There is definitely something special about Kauai’s apple bananas aka “candy apple bananas. They are low in calories, high in potassium and an excellent source of vitamin B6 and fiber with three times the vitamin C and 1-1/2 times the vitamin A found in regular banana varieties.
