Hey Pumpkin! {pumpkin Banana Coconut Muffins}

Hey Pumpkin! {pumpkin Banana Coconut Muffins}
i’ve really been making some improvements to the blog over the past few days…spacing things more efficiently, changed the contact email address, and most importantly, announcing the fact that i am now officially a foodbuzz featured publisher!  there will be additional changes in the coming days so keep your eyes peeled.

back to the food…who doesn’t need a little pumpkin in there lives during these season changing times.  i had a cup of pumpkin puree that has moved with us from the condo to the new house and decided it was nearing the non-usable stage so i better get cracking!  i couldn’t find a recipe that tickled my fancy, so i morphed, added and took away until i had created my very own masterpiece.  i love that these also helped use up a few of my gazillion frozen bananas, and that really the only added fat was from olive oil.  these are hearty, while light and you can definitely taste the pumpkin, the spices and the sweetness of the bananas. it may have a long ingredient list, but they are a snap to whip up.  a perfect snack for this chilly time of year.
