Skinny Strawberry Banana Muffins

Right now our family is going through bananas like they are never ending… Seriously!
i managed to use 3 in my baking, Dad took 2 with him to work and my little brother had one for breakfast….

So much for rationing 😛
These muffins conjure up memories of summer, and strawberry banana smoothies…


I miss summer so much! Winter just seems to lack any real appeal factor – other than hot chocolate or chai tea 😉
So if you are in the mood for some skinny summer muffins, or just love strawberries and banana in a muffin shaped serving, you will love this completely healthy recipe!
