-You can make this recipe into cupcakes, just shorten the baking time to 18-25 minutes. Check them after 18 minutes.
-I like cooking my bananas before I use them in this recipe. I usually microwave my for 30 seconds- 1 minute to bring extra sweetness out of the bananas and to make it easier to mash them. Not necessary though!*
