There are 3 things I love about muffins:
- It’s so easy to make.
- It’s a great treat between meals.
- Even though it’s sweet – you can call it breakfast!
These peanut butter banana muffins are such a great breakfast treat – it contains banana, peanut butter, maple and cinnamon, and has the greatest smell once baking. All you need is a bowl and a whisk – and you’re on you way to having these so yummy mini muffins.
