I brought these muffins to my friend’s house and after 10 minutes they were gone. They loved them so much. Even children were excited about them. They are sweet with banana flavor and with addition of mango. I’ve added quinoa and I can honestly tell you that I love baking with quinoa. Period. I will always come back to this recipe.
