How Do You Get Bananas To Ripen Quickly

To get the bananas to ripen more quickly there are a couple of methods you can use.

Paper Bag: Put the bananas in a paper bag and fold the top. Let it sit for a day. You can also add an apple or another ripened banana to the bag. This should ripen the bananas in a day.

Oven: To ripen bananas in the oven you would preheat the oven to 350. Then line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Place the bananas on the baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. You will need to flip the bananas over halfway through the cooking time. The banana skins will turn black all over. When finished cooking let them cool down and then peel and mash for your muffins.

How To Store

Store in an airtight container for 2-4 days.

Place paper towels in the bottom of an airtight container. Add your muffins to the container on top of the paper towels. Place another piece of paper towel on top. Cover and then store the muffins at room temperature.

If you refrigerate the muffins the texture and flavor could change. If the paper towels become damp you can replace them.

Can I Freeze Muffins

Yes, you can. Freezing them is a great way to store them to use later. To freeze the muffins you want to make sure that they are cooled down completely. After cooled down place them on a baking sheet and freeze them for 30-60 minutes. Then you will tightly wrap the muffins and place them in a freezer-safe container or bags. Store in the freezer for up to two months.
