Banana Nut Med Muffins
Most muffins are just a step away from cake with lots of added sugar. Not these med muffins! These muffins have no added sugar and super healthy fats from nuts. They are one of my favorite things to find in my lunch box. Use muffin papers and spray them with non-stick spray for the best product. You can experiment with using pears in the place of the apples and vary the type of nuts you use.
