Banana Bran Muffins

Baked, not fried—so you can eat more!     When I first changed my blog’s name last month, a few program settings prevented my links from redirecting properly.

Lemon olive oil mini cakes are layered with strawberry jam and coated in pecans. Change up the jam and/or nuts to your taste.
