Brown Butter Banana Muffins

Lynnda Cloutier


Agave syrup, made from the same plant tequila is made from, adds a warm sweetness to these moist muffins. If you have some chopped toasted pecans, throw in a handful for a nice crunch. A smear of cream cheese on a warm muffin is pure heaven. Bagels begone! From five ingredient fix.
