Banana Nut Muffins

Nuts are probably my favorite in between meals snack. Nuts are good sources of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. You just have to be careful not to over do it when it comes to eating nuts because they are also packed with calories. Also, make sure you are not allergic to them. The Banana Nut Muffins recipe is the courtesy of personal trainer, Chris George. I’m out of my element in the kitchen,but this is an easy recipe even for yours truly.
