Maple Ginger Banana Muffins


#maple #gingerbread #banana #muffins #breakfast #healthy
I hope everyone had a fun-filled Valentine's weekend.  My husband and I spent the weekend with the kids at Legoland.  Not very romantic, but it was fun.  At least the parts where my four year old didn't take off on us or throw a fit when he didn't get his way.  Such is life with kids.  I am happy to be home in my own bed and cooking fresh meals again.  We had a lot of fast food at the park and on the road, but now it's back to healthy eating, like these Maple Ginger Banana Muffins.  I kept wanting to try making these during the holidays, but never got around to it.  I figured now was as good a time as any.
























I just tweaked my usual muffin recipe to include molasses, spices, and crystallized ginger chips.

The smell of ginger and molasses as these muffins were baking was truly intoxicating.  I couldn't wait to eat one.

They came out perfectly spiced, moist, and light.  The banana flavor actually took a backseat in these muffins.  They are more of a spiced gingerbread muffin with secret healthy ingredients.  The crystallized ginger chips are what give these Maple Ginger Banana Muffins their distinct flavor.  I bought mine at World Market, but you can find them online also.  They are made by The Ginger People.  I highly recommend them.

These muffins are definitely are "Yum".  I think I may have eaten three already.  Just for quality assurance, of course. I think it's time to go test another one.
