Best Banana Muffins (or Bread)

I can't even explain my love for muffins appropriately... But, this is my most most favorite recipe for banana bread. I seriously make it at least once or twice a month, and my kids can't eat enough of them!!

1 stick butter
¾ cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup flour
1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
3 large ripe bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla
(1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional, but I never add them)

1- Preheat oven to 350 F
2- Cream together butter & sugar, add eggs 1 at a time.
3- Add dry ingredients & mix well.
4- Add bananas and vanilla. (and nuts)
5- Put mixture into gallon-sized Ziploc bag, cut small triangle off corner of bag, and squeeze into paper muffin pan.
6- Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
7- Cool 10 minutes in pan, then on rack. (Best served warm!)

For Bread version:
5- Pour mixture into greased bread pan.
6- Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until lightly browned.
7- Cool 10 minutes in pan, then on rack.

-Don't think I have lots of time on my hands, I just have lots of my recipes on my computer already... :)

Now that we have church at 11 instead of 9 I had some time to make breakfast Sunday morning. These muffins are great. I took a couple to church for Willow and she kept asking for more. I guess I should have brought the whole bad. I like that this recipe calls for half whole wheat and half white.
