Yucky brown bananas.
Yucky brown bananas.

One of my goals this year is to try to minimize our food expenses. No, we are not going on a starvation diet and no we probably won’t make many significant changes to what we eat. I just want to see if we can make better use of the food we have, waste less and maybe pick up some savings at the grocery store.

So, this week, I took my yucky brown bananas…..


tossed in some ingredients on hand, following this recipe from Metrocurean but substituting Starbucks hot chocolate mix for the cocoa powder and plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream and putting it in the “Texas” muffin pan since my son had hidden the bread pans somewhere and . . . .

Voila! These were devoured instantly. Decluttering through eating!
