These muffins are a new favorite of mine.. I posted a tease of them on my Instagram story and so many people reached out showing their excitement 🙂 I promise they are as delicious as they look! I get a lot of people tell me they don’t like banana (why I will never know cause I LOVE banana lol) but I can appreciate people have different likes and dislikes, a lot of my baking recipes have banana in them as it is a great substitute to keep points nice and low.. I set out to make a tasty “banana free” muffin and these could not of turned out any better! Makes a dozen regular sized muffins at just 3 freestyle smart points each..
