What a great thing to do with those ripe bananas that are sitting on your counter staring at you! The sour cream in this recipe really makes these bites moist and tasty. I’ve subjected several friends and relatives to the taste testing portion of my research, and they all love it and want the recipe. Yay!

I was short on time so only made one mini muffin tin and put the rest of the mixture in the frig, covered. I made two more muffin tins of these little jewels the next day. Delish!
I used flour baking spray to grease the mini muffin tins. I sprayed a little bit into each well and then spread it up the sides. It worked perfectly!
You can add blueberries to the dough if you’d like.
