Banana-Walnut Muffins

Homemade muffins provide a smarter portion size than commercial options, but low-fat versions often yield dry and tasteless results. But not in this recipe! Healthier fats keep these muffins moist, light and just as delicious, with fruit and nuts.

The result? Less calories, less sugar, more fiber…and 100% great taste!
