My banana whoopie pies become muffins

Assalamualaikum wbt..

In this household we take Bananas seriously :D It's one of the best fruits there ever is! Which is why stocking it up on weekends is a must for us.
Do head over here to read about the goodness of this yellow fruit.
Anyway, I've been baking diligently for the past 2 weeks- some with very happy outcome that made our big tum tum thank us and some, not so :)

I came across the recipe for banana whoopie here  and was intrigued how a whoopie pie might taste like. I followed the recipe to the tee and substituted yogurt for the sour cream (coz sour cream are expensive!) and ended with these:

Whoop whoop whoop whoop whoop, oopa whoopie style:

Except I wasn't convince whoopie pies are supposed to be soft with a muffin/ bread like texture. The idea of filling it up with cream cheese in the middle was repulsive for some strange reason. So I popped the 'pies' into my mouth and damn, it was LOVE at first bite. Minus cream cheese and fillings and all. Sometimes, some things are good enough to be eaten alone!

I had a request from the husband to make it again (always a sign it's good!) and it was him who suggested I make it into muffin form. I of course happily obliged coz getting making these babies small using a ice cream scoop is a bit of a pain.

It was a nice moment roping my daughter in to give her helping hand in baking. She was very excited over her very important task of helping out with mashing the bananas. She tried to steal a few bites of course, oh yes she did! Monkeys should never go near bananas I swear, lol, I kid!

Perfect scoop not required. That's the beauty of baking just for family. haha. And it's all ready to be popped into the oven.

Some 20 minutes later... a beautiful aroma consisting a familiar banana smell was hitting the kitchen and living room which prompted the little one to run to ask if its ready..She always does that whenever there's something in the oven.

Perfect banana muffin which made an awesome quick breakfast! We made this on Saturday night and half of it finished within minutes! Amazing..
Instead of 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup sugar as called by the recipe, I only used 1/2 cup brown sugar in order to make it a little healthier. The husband whacked half of the tray ALL BY HIMSELF and we were down to only 5 muffin (of course Aulia' and I whacked one each too) for weekend breakfast, haha.

Mmmm..B.A.N.A.N.A muffins!

And thats lady and gents, is how we butchered a whoopie pie recipe into becoming our favorite banana muffin for the family. Regardless, thank you, Martha, you've got me anxious baking on Saturdays now:) Highly recommend you try this recipe for the kids and family-they will LOVE it! And you of course!
