Mom's Banana Bread!

I am here today with a pretty amazing recipe: my mom's banana bread! I've been eating this awesome loaf my whole life, it's an old, old recipe. I recently started making it myself, but I make it into muffins instead of loaf, since I just think it's more practical and it's easier to grab one and take it to work.
I promised to share this with you when I mentioned them in my camping recap post, so here it is:

1/2 cup butter/margarine
1 cup sugar
2 eggs (well-beaten)
3 large bananas (mashed) *Bananas should be over-ripe, almost entirely brown works really well, but just a little brown is ok too. Just don't use ripe bananas :)
1 tsp of vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Cream margarine, sugar, eggs and vanilla.
3. Stir in bananas.
4. Add flour, soda, salt.
5. Pour into greased and floured pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the muffin comes out dry. I would say it's about 15-20 minutes, but I didn't time it so make sure you keep an eye on them!

Don't they just look delicious? A banana muffin is the perfect morning snack :). I have been taking one to work for my daily 10am snack every day this week! I need to get some more brown/black bananas soon because I am running out! Hope you enjoy this recipe if you try it!

Yummmm! I love banana bread, though I like muffin idea so you can just grab one. I know there's sugar in them, but they don't seem too unhealthy either.
