Banana Muffin 

From our test kitchen to your home kitchen                  

Banana muffins were often a favourite food for me back in my twenties, but I remember the bloated feeling that came with eating a muffin, that was actually another name for a cake. 
I enjoyed creating this healthy recipe, that you could almost eat raw because of its  natural and  wholesome ingredients. 
Be sure to share this one to your friends and family.
