banana gingerbread muffins

I was inspired to make these healthy gingerbread muffins when I read a recipe from one of my favorite food blogs, Pinch of Yum.

However, if you know me, I love to put my own spin on things. Which is why I decided to make these delectable Banana Gingerbread Muffins.

These muffins could be a nice breakfast with a cup of coffee. Another option is to put some icing on the muffins, and enjoy them as dessert.
