The Best Banana Muffins You Ever Put In Your Mouth!

I have two daughters that go to our local community college. The whole day is basically on the run....and food is on the "Grab it and Go" basis.

I had come up with some things that had been working for the first several weeks...
Fruit, Cheese Sticks, Boiled Eggs, Grapes, granola bars... are some of them...
but they were getting tired of the same ole I was wracking my brain for something healthy and portable for them to take.

I came up with this Muffin Recipe that we really liked....It is full of stuff that is good for them.

I like to call them:
The Best Banana Muffins You EVER Put in Your Mouth!

1 Tbs Pure Vanilla

In a separate Bowl Mix

makes approx 36 mini muffins

They turned out really good. They were moist and we put them in little snake size zip lock baggies and put them in the freezer.

The girls grabbed them with some other goodies and off to school they went.

Variations for this recipe are as follows:
(we tried them all in the past two weeks....:))

Applesauce Raisin Muffins

2 Cups Applesauce replaces the applesauce and bananas
1/2 Cup of Raisins replace the Chocolate Chips
2 tsp of Cinnamon replaces the Vanilla
Everything else the same
