As you likely know, we think muffins are the bomb. Who doesn’t love a good muffin? We prefer them waistline- friendly, of course. Most muffins are typically loads of calories and fat—and they’re usually disastrous calorie bombs. But this delicious goodie feels indulgent and contains healthy ingredients. As you know, we frequently like to whip up these types of creations! Do you remember our Chocolate Chip Banana & Zucchini Muffins, or our Skinny Pumpkin Muffins, or these these Skinny Mini Muffins, just to name a few!
Well, say hello to these pups! We love these muffins because they are great on-the-go and satisfy your sweet tooth but get most of their sweetness from bananas and then a splash of honey. Plus, these muffs are tasty refrigerated and chilled or just at room temp, easy-breezy, whatever works best for you! Enjoy!

To make a yummy meal that is both filling and packed with protein, be sure to eat it with a non-fat Greek yogurt or eggs or low-fat cottage cheese.
Makes: 8 servings
2- ½ medium bananas (about 7-inches each)

1 ½ tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. of cinnamon
Oil in a spray container
