Kale, Carrot, and Banana Tigernut Muffins

Kristen and I had so much fun baking these muffins together! We wanted to bake a muffin that was both nutritious and delicious at the same time. We thought to add some greens, just enough to nourish the body with vitamins and minerals as well as add fiber, and added banana to give it a sweet touch. It came out perfectly! Just as we imagined, but with a little more fun! Our muffins and recipes are always made with love.
These muffins are dairy free, gluten free, and nut-free.

Ingredients:
2 bananas, extra ripe and mashed
