Banana Muffins for the Healthy Heart

Banana Muffin Tops for the Healthy Heart

Recipes with bananas have always been tricky for me. Getting the texture takes a bit of expertise!

My mom devised this recipe so my dad would have a healthy, yet tasty, snack on hand! I tried them and they don’t even taste like a “healthy recipe!” She actually made muffin tops rather than regular muffins to make them seem a bit fancier and more appealing! But you can make regular muffins!

Since this is a heart-healthy recipe, take a listen to “I Let a Song Go Out of My Heart” sung by Ella Fitzgerald. It’s a great tune!
