We are in muffin mode at my house. My daughter spied the rotten bananas and wanted to try baking a new morning muffin for the week. We used red baking cups for a Valentine’s Day theme.
To add more protein we added an egg white and yogurt. We also used 1 cup of oats and 1 cup of whole wheat flour for fiber. To keep these muffins low sugar, we only added a small amount of sugar and shredded coconut. And for the first time baking, I was the one responsible for the giant mess! Get messy! Have fun! And eat healthy!
