½ cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter, melted
4 bananas, ripe and mashed w/ fork

1 teaspoon vanilla
Optional: nuts, white or milk chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350°F.

Spray muffin tins (regular-sized or mini-muffin tins will work) with cooking spray.

Whisk flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl, use a fork to mix butter, banana, egg and vanilla until combined.

Pout wet ingredients into dry ingredients, and gently mix, being careful not to over-mix.
