Easy Potluck Brunch Banana Crumb Muffins

Easy Brunch Banana Crumb Muffins

I am not the best cook, I fully admit that.  I am also an extremely picky eater and vegetarian.  So when it’s time to go or host to a potluck brunch I need to make something I know I will be able to eat.  Just in case no one else brings anything I can eat.  Muffins are my go to Potluck Brunch creation.  One of my favorite muffins are actually the lemon raspberry ones my husband makes; but they are harder to make, take longer, and are more expensive.  Since I buy banana’s normally and then have a tendency to let them go bad I just freeze them so that when a potluck brunch comes around I can make this yummy treat!

The recipe I prefer is from All Recipe  I promise they are easy to make and absolutely delicious! One of the amazing things that All Recipes does is it allows you to change the serving size and it adjusts the ingredients appropriately. Go to the website to change your serving size.
