Banana & Walnut Muffins

20 February 2007

We made some yummy muffins for morning tea! I swapped a few ingredients to make them extra healthy. I used no sugar, so it had a lovely bready, nutty flavour.

We ate them straight from the oven, steaming hot with natural yoghurt, honey and blueberries. My kids loved them!
