Banana Cupcakes with Honey Cinnamon Frosting

22 Feb

I don’t know about you, but every time I buy banana’s I can never seem to eat them all before they turn brown. I like them only right after they turn from green to yellow. I have had this recipe saved for a while, I knew sooner or later I would have some overripe banana’s to use up.  These cupcakes are so moist and delicious, you will want to buy banana’s just so you can make them. I’m telling you, let your banana’s go brown so you can try this! The frosting perfectly complements the banana cupcakes. I love that they have just a hint of cinnamon.
