Passover Banana Muffins

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by karen

Breads & desserts are hard to come by during Passover, and this one is a winner for breakfast, dinner or dessert. Feel free to add some nuts if you like them. NOTE: Baking soda is allowed during Passover from the sources that I have checked. In fact, baking soda & cream of tarter is listed as a substitution for baking powder, which is not allowed unless you buy a kosher for passover brand.

I have made these muffins 2 years in a row and they are always a huge hit. I left out the cream of tartar this time and didn't notice a difference. Personally I prefer a little less sweat, but my kids love them just the way they are. Next year I think I'll do one batch with half the sugar for me :-)
