Quick Notes

I made these for Ryann, so most of them were baked into mini muffins. I did not use walnuts, as we are not a nut family. I do not like bananas, so I set some of the mixture  aside and made some with the mashed banana, and some without.


You can add other berries, and substitute the oil with applesauce.
