The BEST Banana Muffins
These banana muffins make the PERFECT breakfast bite with your morning coffee, a midday snack, or even a post-workout snack!
When thinking about ingredients for your muffins, try to stick to whole-grain flours as they retain all layers of the grain — they’re a good source of fiber, vitamin B6, + magnesium which help with digestion! Use coconut oil for added vitamins + minerals ++ cinnamon to help reduce inflammation over time. Bananas contain a good source of protein, which is essential for the growth, repair, + recovery of muscle.The added bananas help restore the glycogen lost during a workout + help our muscles recover. Who knew a muffin could be so healthy?!
