Whenever my husband and I visit his parents, my mother-in-law always cooks healthy yet tasty dishes throughout our entire stay. I usually sit down on the couch, get an lecture on food science from my father-in-law, who happens to be a grain chemist, and wait for the dinner. I'm so spoiled. I enjoy every meal she prepares, and on our last visit, I got particularly hooked on her banana muffins. I couldn't get enough of them. I ate them for breakfast, snacks, and midnight snacks. It was less sweet and less oily than regular muffins and reminded me of the old time cupcakes I ate as a kid. It was so good that I asked for the recipe. Using her recipe as a base, I created my own banana muffin recipe, and here it is.
