Banana Ginger Muffins, a soft, warmly spiced muffin with walnuts or pecans that become morning addictive. Easy and healthy and perfect! 

Muffin baking is a weekly event in my house. A perfect grab-and-go snack — meal, like breakfast — or brown bag addition. Healthy, filling… with a little sweetness to soften those typical, hectic mornings. 

Early in the week, I like to bake a couple of batches of muffins. The flavors and additions vary depending on the season… or what I need to use. We love blueberry muffins, year around. As well as these Banana Ginger muffins. 

Over the years, we’ve added several of our favorite muffin recipes. You can find those… here.

Mixing up basic recipes by incorporating seasonal elements help keep it fresh, interesting and flavorful. In the spring — I love to add a variety of berries, in the summer I’ll incorporate zucchini and carrots, and in the fall and winter — well, everything goes well in the fall and winter! During the cold months, I love to use my freezer stash of delicious berries I froze from the summer before.

So, grab yourself a cup of coffee and get to baking. Oh… did I mention? These are incredible with a cup of coffee… or tea!
