Pumpkin Banana Muffins

When it comes to Fall recipes, I’m a sucker for anything and everything pumpkin! I’m always looking for nutritious on the go snacks/ breakfast ideas that will keep my cub satisfied. These pumpkin banana muffins have become a weekly staple in our home and were adapted from a mommy friend’s recipe. She is a personal trainer and wife of a football coach and is always making sure her kids are getting the best nutrition possible, even if it means eating on the go!

  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons Agave (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1/2 of a ripened banana (mashed)
