Banana Muffins

For my workout today I went to a Power Body Sculpting class at my gym. It was a great workout that fatigued practically every muscle in my body and had my heart rate up the whole time. I know I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again: group classes are perfect on Monday mornings.

I have an awesome recipe for you today! We had some very brown bananas on the counter yesterday so I decided to try my hand at some Whole Grain Banana Muffins. The Little One will only eat muffins for breakfast so I make a batch or two of muffins every week.  These were an awesome breakfast.  I had two topped with some peanut butter and a side of raspberries.  These would also be a great pre run/ workout snack.

They are moist and light but very hearty and chock full of fiber! These little babies are sure to keep me full for hours.

I still have tons of cleaning to do in my house after the big Birthday Party. Better get to it!


Do your kids (or you) have a favorite won’t-eat-anything-else breakfast?
