I love dessert. These bananas foster muffins are delicious and evoke all the flavors of the classic bananas foster dessert. They are perfect for a unique thing to bring to a breakfast or brunch or to have as a decadent snack. 

The sugar filled muffins you can get in packages at the store are full of sugar and synthetic preservatives. Making your own not only tastes better but you are in control of ingredients. You can use delicious but nutrient dense whole foods like oats, nuts, fruit, and spices. As in my Maple Pumpkin Oat muffin recipe, you will also not find sugar in this recipe. The maple syrup sweetens these muffins wonderfully. I love making a big batch of these and then popping a bunch in the freezer to grab and go as we please. Try these! I know you will love them as much as my family does. 

These bananas foster muffins are absolutely delicious.   They are great as is but I drizzled tahini over mine and is kicked them up another notch – try it!

Pre-heat the oven to 375

Three very ripe bananas  

1 cup of cashew milk or other milk of choice ( I like tp use leftover pulp from my homemade coffee creamer
