Roasted Banana Muffins

While these; little bananas don’t look very appealing right here, let me assure you that the depth of flavor you get by roasting the fruit is amazing and utterly wonderful.  Add some walnuts or pecans and a little cinnamon ~ you’ve got a real treat that is particularly wonderful with a hot cup of tea or coffee. Kids really love these too!
