One of my personal favourite muffin recipes of all time; these muffins are a delicious and healthy snack.
The sweetness and moisture of the ripe bananas adds all the liquid and natural sugar necessary for a very delicious and healthy alternative to store bought muffins.  That means no added refined sugar or flour making these muffins ideal for everyone.
Instead of walnuts, consider substituting coconut, raisins or any other fruit and nut combination you like. These muffins will not only save your money but along with a proper diet and exercise help trim the waistline.
As with all the recipes I post, try them once and then experiment to give it your own flavour.
