Now that the kids are home, what is for breakfast (or snack)? Banana Muffins (sugar and gluten free)


Why I recommend these: My kids love them and ask for them. They taste great and are filled with good healthy protein and fat. While maple syrup and coconut sugar are sweet and have a lot of calories, they also provides minerals so they are a worthwhile addition to this recipe. In a perfect world we wouldn't need to sweeten anything, but if you want sweet, these are a better options that refined sugar, that has no nutritional value. All things in moderation of course.
