Sweet and fruity banana walnut muffin recipe

Posted in Recipes.

For those who want something sweet yet crunchy, all wrapped up in a handy, no-mess muffin case, this banana walnut muffin recipe is for you!

Delicious muffins filled with fruit and topped with nuts, I’m turning a blind eye to sugar and just focusing on the healthy elements here. If it’s a healthier option you’re after, try cutting back the sugar and replacing with honey.
