Skinny Mini Banana Bread Muffins 650

Not only are these Skinny Mini Banana Bread Muffins delicious, but they are low calorie and filling! We had some additional toppings like almonds, pecans, raisins, chocolate granola, and dark chocolate chips in the pantry so we decided to top each mini muffin with 1-2 pieces and they turned out great! Feel free to experiment with whatever toppings you have on hand to make them the perfect bite-sized snack or dessert!
