Muffins are a great way to enjoy an easy breakfast or a snack!And if you like them really simple, soft and super  moist, then look no further, since I’ve got for you the most delicious basic muffin recipe that will not disappoint!I’ve made this recipe so many times with my 4 year old who loves to mash up the bananas while I get the other stuff ready :)

I found a basic muffin recipe in ‘Taste Of Home’ magazine and made some changes to make it more healthier and it couldn’t have been better :)The use of wholewheat flour and brown sugar makes these the ideal nutrition packed breakfast or snack for kids and adults.The bananas add that extra moistness and incredible flavor to these beauties.Needless to say,they’ve become a staple in our house!.Healthy, wholesome and guilt free :)
