Mini banana muffins

Banana Muffins

My husband loves these banana bites and the good thing about them is that they are delicious to eat without butter and also freeze well. If you want them to last you will need to add the full amount of sugar as the sugar keeps them fresher for longer, however if you just want to eat on the day then you can reduce the sugar by 1/4 cup which will result in a healthier treat. You could make these banana muffins into the standard muffin size thus yielding 12 muffins however you will just have to bake for a further 7-10 minutes.
