In this post we share a wonderful recipe from Melissa Jack – The Everything Muffin recipe.

You know when you have that one brown banana that you don’t want to waste, but one isn’t really enough to whip up a banana cake or banana bread? Yeah that happened to me today.  Not to be thwarted by my lack of over-ripe fruit, I decided to attempt a recipe makeover.

I love breakfast muffins and have a great recipe that is decidedly unhealthy {1 1/2 cups of sugar!}.  Boo.  Using ingredients that I had on hand I mixed things up and the result is a delicious, easy recipe and a perfect lunch-box filler, plus I managed to cut down some of the sugar and flour content without sacrificing on taste!
