Healthy Banana Muffins

Full disclaimer: I am not a fan of bananas, but I make banana muffins for my kids every now and then. These muffins turn out fantastic every single time. Loaded with wholesome ingredients, they make the ultimate afterschool snack.  

INGREDIENTS OVERVIEW

Overripe bananas: make sure they’re almost all the way brown so that these muffins have the right amount of sweetness.

Whole wheat flour: I love using whole wheat flour because it adds a boost of nutrients while making these muffins perfectly fluffy.

Maple syrup: Real maple syrup — not just maple-flavored syrup, which can be loaded with refined sugar or high-fructose corn syrup
