Banana Bran Date Muffins


This favorite muffin recipe of mine is made from healthy whole ingredients, has ZERO added sugar, and it’s loaded with fiber and nutrition. It’s sweetened with bananas and is very high in fiber.

These muffins make a perfect on-the-go breakfast or snack.  Pair one with a salad, a piece of cheese, or a handful of nuts, and you have a simple lunch!
