Breakfast Banana Muffins

Breakfast Banana Muffins

Muffins are basically cupcakes without frosting.

Plus, they’re usually super-sized and loaded with not-so-good-for-you ingredients like refined flour, butter, or vegetable oil, and of course, lots of sugar.

But these delicious banana muffins are healthy and they taste like banana bread!

Whole-wheat flour adds extra fiber and nutrients that white flour lacks; ripe bananas and a touch of honey add natural sweetness in place of sugar.

And because bananas are good at keeping baked goods moist, this recipe uses only a scant amount of coconut oil.

If your bananas aren’t quite ripe yet, check out this post for clever tips on how to ripen bananas faster. Now get baking!
