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:
