The Best {No Sugar} Banana Muffins

This morning, Amelia woke up and asked me to bake banana muffins. Since we always have overripe bananas frozen in the freezer, we had our morning activity planned! We mixed everything together and 25 minutes later had some tasty, NO SUGAR muffins ready to devour.

I just love that these don’t have any added sugar in them! They used to be one of those foods I made the girls when they first started eating solids, so we’ve been making these for years! That’s how you know these are good.

While they both have sweets now, I figured there’s no reason to keep adding it if they don’t miss it in some things! And you know what, the more ripe the bananas, the sweeter the muffins are anyway. Both girls ate these right up! Oh, and I might have joined in to the taste tasting as well. 🙂

PS – these freeze well so double the recipe and make extra for a quick morning breakfast/snack on the go!img_4391_jpg

  3. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients (minus the walnuts) well. Gently mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Fold in walnuts, if adding them.
  4. Fill greased muffin tins nearly to the top with the mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 17 – 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out the middle of each muffin cleanly. img_4366_jpg
