And… I’ve done it again.

You’re probably thinking, ‘Another muffin recipe?!’ Well, yes. Yes, it is. But actually, what I’ve done again is forgotten to post a recipe. Or, just put off posting until the perfect time, which I suppose is now! This one is actually from about a month and a half ago when I was on a big muffin kick. In fact, I haven’t made muffins in almost two weeks now… maybe it’s time to whip up a batch?

Perhaps I will pop these Banana Coco-Chip Muffins in the oven!

I intended these to be ‘no sugar’ until I realized the sweetener I used is actually a ‘reduced sugar.’ It was a sample of PreSweet Tagatose I received from NuNaturals a while back.

Well, plus they have mini chocolate chips in them so I suppose they couldn’t be ‘no sugar’ after all, could they? In any case, they were delicious!

Do you ever make muffins without foil liners? I don’t ever use them anymore!
