Banana Nut Muffin Recipe

Banana Nut Muffin

This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes.  These muffins are packed with carbs for energy, just enough sweetness to feel like they’re a splurge, and to top it all off they have nuts for protein.  It’s a healthy breakfast treat that tastes like a dessert.  Trust me, you’ll thank me for this recipe!

    Just tried this recipe and it was a hit! Didn’t have walnuts and used almond silvers and it came out just as great. I was wondering can you freeze these and how long will it last in the freezer. Thank you so very much!
