Banana muffins are a great, healthy breakfast option. These are so easy to make and taste delicious!
I love banana muffins. They are one of my most favorite types of muffin. I like to make these and store them in the refrigerator. When it is time for breakfast, I slightly heat the muffins in the microwave. They always taste great.
These muffins make a great breakfast on the go. They are also a great way to get your kids to eat bananas.
To make these muffins extra delicious, I topped them with cinnamon and sugar before I put them into the oven. You don’t have to do this step, however, it does make the muffins taste pretty spectacular.
You might notice that these muffins don’t require oil. How cool is that? Instead, I used apple sauce. Dont worry, you cannot taste the apple sauce. So, it doesn’t interfere with the banana flavor. Using apple sauce, instead of oil, is a healthier way to prepare these amazing banana muffins.
Why banana muffins?
My family loves bananas. We never seem to finish them though. I always end up with a few overripe bananas that no one wants to eat. These muffins are a great way to use those leftover bananas.
