Banana muffins are a great way to use overripe bananas.

They freeze very well and a great snack for the kids.

With only 100 calories,  a medium-sized  banana has many health benefits. Strong antioxidant, it would for example prevent many diseases such as certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes.  Bananas are also an excellent source of vitamin B6, an essential vitamin that the body can not manufacture and must be provided by food.

Bananas  are a good addition to your baking.

  1. These are so my kind of muffins and a definite must-try very soon!

  2. Wow! These Muffins look so good. I was tempted to reach through my monitor and grab one of the muffins.

  3. I make banana muffins and freeze them for those mornings I want something but can’t be bothered cooking. I’m going to make yours next time – they look better than mine. :)

  4. This is a great muffin recipe. I saw this blog at 2 in the morning and it made me very hungry. I think I had some amazing dreams about making and eating these Almond Butter Muffins.
