Vegan Pumpkin Seed & Banana Breakfast Muffins

Vegan Pumpkin Seed & Banana Breakfast Muffins

A good old and not to sweet muffin is worth gold – yet difficult to find. I never understood why baked goods or any sweet need to be that sweet! As if all that should be detected by our tastebuds is sugar – what about all that good cinnamon and peanut butter we’re missing out on when treating ourselves to a little something? These breakfast muffins don’t need a lot of extra sweetness – their sweet temptations stems from ripe bananas as well as dried dates. There’s nothing better than those two in combination – oh, and peanut butter! Never ever forget the peanut butter.
