Makes about 20 medium sized muffins at approx. 150kcal per muffin.

Tips:
Mashing the bananas! I place the peeled bananas into a ziplock bag and just mash them with my hands until they’re liquid with a few small lumps. Once mashed you can cut the corner off with scissors and squeeze the contents into your liquid ingredient bowl mess free!
bananas
Mix the wet and dry ingredients separately first
drywetThen mix the dry into the wet until there are no dry spots but its’ still somewhat lumpy. Over mixing will make the muffins less soft and fluffy!
combinedThen fill your muffin cups. Filling them 100% will cause them to overflow in the oven, so don’t fill them all of the way up.8
