Quinn and I did a little baking over the weekend because we had some ripe bananas that needed to be used sooner than later.

I was craving a good muffin, so what to bake was an easy decision. And I amped up the staying power with SFH protein powder, Greek yogurt, and eggs. The end result was a banana muffin that I plan to make again and again!

They were also a HUGE hit with both Mal and Quinn. (I’m sure Murphy would have liked them too.) In fact, a little someone (in Batman rain boots no less) snagged one during the photo shoot and went right in for a big bite.


Mmm! Banana muffin success!
