Berry Banana Muffins

This recipe evolved from a banana muffin that I used to make almost every week for five years! Though it was a favorite with my kids and many of their friends, it was time for a change…
The fruit in this muffin provide a natural sweetness and moistness that is sure to please, and the almond flour (a healthy fat) will help keep you feeling full for longer than a wheat-based muffin. Great for a quick breakfast, snack, or packed in a lunchbox – hope you like it!
