No added sugar banana muffinsYears ago I whipped up a commonly-ate food in our home; Eve’s Happy Belly Banana Muffins. To this day they are one of the most popular recipes on my website. They’re gluten and dairy free, and oh so tasty. Fast-forward to today and our family is now on a #60DaysNoSugar journey. For the next 60 days, we cannot eat our beloved banana muffins because they have, you guessed it, sugar.

This is why I am introducing the No Added Sugar Banana Muffins!

I was nervous. I was nervous because, as we all know, sugar makes everything taste better. Sugar adds the perfect amount of sweetness that makes our pallet yearn for more. How could I get the kids to eat a muffin that isn’t sweet?

I was afraid the kids wouldn’t eat these “new and improved” muffins. Thankfully, I was wrong. They like them plain or with some no added sugar peanut butter smeared on them.

These muffins turned out pretty darn good. I can tell because the kids are eating them! If food passes the “kid test”, you know you’re in luck.
