I made this recipe after too many heavy banana muffins. I worked to perfect the recipe for weeks then posted to my cooking blog.

My friend Sonya who lives in the Netherlands saw and makes these and she says her husband takes them to work and they are in love with them. My husband takes them to work as well and they holler if I don't make enough...These light muffins are a dream to make and eat!
