I can’t believe it’s September and Summer is winding down all too quickly. The kiddo started preschool…. and Halloween and Christmas Decorations are out at a lot of stores. It is still pretty warm here which is very nice… as I am currently dreading the upcoming Winter.  Thank goodness there is Fall! I love baking when it cools off…. and one of my favorite childhood recipes is my Mom’s banana bread. That is actually one of the first thing I started baking when I was a kid. There is something so comforting about a warm muffin topped in butter right out of the oven. This recipe is a healthier version of the traditional banana bread, and I have to say I am quite impressed with the outcome! These Banana Nut Muffins are Dairy Free, Sugar Free, Vegan, and Gluten Free! I tried my best to cater to all!

Happy Thursday!
