These banana muffins are a simple and healthy treat that can easily be eaten for breakfast or as a snack. There is no refined sugar added into these muffins, as the sweetness comes from the ripened bananas and pure maple syrup.

I love to add walnuts for an extra crunch, or sometimes dark chocolate chips. The square muffin tins I have chosen to bake mine in for this recipe yields 9 muffins (measures 6cm x 6cm x 2cm), but if using a regular cupcake/muffin tray, you will get 12. You can also bake these in a loaf tin.

These muffins are very moist, you may bake them for slightly longer if you prefer them to be less moist.
