Healthy muffins for the ones you love

We are in muffin mode at my house. My daughter spied the overly ripe 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 extra egg white and yogurt. We also used 1 cup of oats and 1 cup of whole wheat flour for extra fiber. To keep these muffins low sugar, we only added a small amount of sugar and shredded coconut.

Enjoy this easy recipe for an extra healthy morning muffin!
