These are slightly tropical tasting and I have thought about incorporating pineapple into the recipe.

This is a sweet (but not too sweet) twist on your average banana muffin!

The recipe makes 8 muffins, but I have made 12 smaller muffins too. Just be sure to adjust the baking time (check them at 15-20 minutes).
