Banana Oat Muffin
~ Mary ~
Aren’t these cute – all wrapped up and the only place to go is in my mouth! They look decadent don’t they? I’m here to tell you it’s just a show! These have virtually no fat and very low sugar and they’re PACKED with flavor.
Low fat + Low sugar = HIGH flavor!
It’s also time for Meeta’s Monthly Mingle. This time it’s being hosted by My Diverse Kitchen and the theme is High Tea. And since I’m a mid-west raised, corn-fed farm girl – the parameters are flexible to include what would you serve for a more elaborate afternoon get-together with tea or coffee. I think these fit the bill and hope you’ll try them out.
