Banana Muffins

This week marks my first week of my dietetic internship. Our Santa Barbara interns came to stay at my house to avoid an extra drive so I thought I’d make them a few treats for breakfast the next day. I was asked to create a product to sell in Fresno State’s Farm Market for a class project. My team came up with this banana nut recipe. It is a mixture of a recipe found on Food Network, my own family recipes, and some additional ingredients that I felt would enhance the flavor. Here is my go to banana nut chocolate chip muffins recipe!

  • 1 Stick of Butter (softened)
  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
