Hawaiian Banana Date Muffins have some of everyone's tropical favorites. Mix and bake and you'll be feeling the ocean breeze in no time.
Hawaiian Banana Date Muffins bring back memories of one of the first recipes I learned to bake, Banana Nut Bread.
Although you can't go wrong with a moist and sweet bread, these have an added twist of going Hawaiian.
All of my tropical favorites are in here. They even have coconut sugar which should really get you feeling that ocean breeze.
I've decided to try a new tradition - Muffin Mondays. We are already meatless on Mondays and every other date of the week so why not create and take advantage of another celebration. That's my motto!
Maybe you'd like to try some of my other muffins along with me.
One of the most popular on the Cinnamon Apple Crisp Muffins. Check out what they look like.
Start with this one though because it is so simple. Nothing extra to do but mix and bake.
Applesauce also goes really well with these muffins. I love to heat the applesauce. That's something I learned in the South. They serve hot applesauce as a side dish.
You can break open the muffins and put a little dollop on top and it is delicious. As always they are perfect with dairy-free butter too or to grab and go just as is.
