Alright- so this morning I took a stab at mini banana muffins. Found my handy dandy mini muffin tray and mini muffin liners to make these adorable little treats. Again, to make them “healthier” I did not add ANY type of sugar or sweeteners and no oils and or butters. I added organic apple sauce to moisten the muffins and since the bananas I used were very ripe, no added sugar needed. I also added some pecans to give them a crunch. I must say these were very tasty but this time as well they did not rise as much. I wonder what I am doing wrong. They taste awesome and little A absolutely enjoyed nibbling on one this morning. These could be a perfect little snack to throw into your toddlers lunch boxes or you can have them for breakfast or snacks. Hope you all enjoy this!
Here is the recipe:
