Banana Muffins



Great recipe for a moist, spongy banana muffins. The steps are fairly straightforward just like any muffin recipes. Mix your dry ingredients together. Mix your wet. Fold them together. Stir in nuts. The key is to mix JUST until it comes together. I made some adjustments to this highly rated/reviewed recipe, and the results were delicious. Follow me and sub with white whole wheat flour, coconut sugar, and applesauce to make them extra nutritious!

I also intentionally kept 1 banana less mashed than the rest to add some chunks and texture. Absolutely thrilled and pleased that none of my substitutions compromised the fluffy texture and taste. And while I was at it, I threw in some mini chocolate chips for good measure.
