By the end of the week, any bananas left in the fruit bowl are past their prime--just right for these moist bran muffins. Add a handful of dark chocolate chips to enhance this fiber-rich treat.
How to Store Banana-Bran Muffins
Wrap each muffin in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 2 days or freeze in freezer bags for up to 1 month. To defrost and heat frozen muffins, remove plastic wrap, wrap in a paper towel and microwave on High for 30 to 45 seconds.
