My Oh So Good Healthier Banana Walnut Muffins

Norma DeRemer


Decided to take one of my old recipes and change things a little bit to save on calories. I heard of agave nectar on TV and looked it up at my local Giant Grocery store and found it in the organic section of the store. I had never heard of it before. I thought for sure I'd have to go to a health food store to find it. Well these dear little babies turned out so good that my husband didn't notice any difference in the taste. To me that make them a winner in my book.
