Whenever I find I have lots of ripened bananas, I feel the need to bake muffins. It is my "go to breakfast" with a hot cup of coffee. I like to play with recipes by adding things I love, and leaving out something else. This recipe has no eggs and no sugar, only natural fruit for sweetness! It's my version of a "huge muffin" with texture and flavor!
