There are certain items that we grab almost every time we go to the grocery store – milk, bread, and bananas. I try to keep bananas around because they are such an easy grab-and-go snack, and everyone likes them.
And having lots of bananas around means that some of them are going to end up as banana bread or muffins. These Banana Muffins are incredibly easy to make – no mixer necessary. They also come together really quickly and are ready to go in the oven by the time my oven is preheated. And they taste great! They are soft and moist with great banana flavor. These muffins are also made with lots of calorie-saving swaps that help keep them more waist-line friendly. They taste so good, though, that no one will guess that they are made with lighter ingredients.
