It's been super hectic in the banana house, and I apologize for not getting these posted sooner! But they're here just in time to have ready for a Christmas breakfast (says the Jewish girl). 

Between wrapping up big projects at work, holiday parties, and the constant running around, I was able to whip up these healthy and delicious muffins! 

I've been into using flax much more- it's filled with Omega-3s, fiber, and protein. Most importantly increasing my omega's is key to helping with skin to help balance my microbiome. The vitamin b's and rich fats in flaxseed and flaxseed oil help with dry skin and can help improve eczema. 

These muffins are the perfect morning treat to keep you going through the day and are filled with healthy fats, fiber, and protein!
