Banana Honey Muffins

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

If you want a deliciously sweet muffin recipe to make, my banana & honey muffins are one of the best. The honey provides you with a real sweet treat, perfect for your kid’s lunch boxes. The muffins are also freezer friendly, so you can stock up for the week.

I always buy bananas in our weekly grocery shop, and while some weeks they are eaten up quickly, others they aren’t.  Usually, I leave them as long as possible in the fruit bowl and then I freeze them for future baking.

To make them school lunch box friendly, make half without walnuts.
