These delicious mini muffins are sure to be a hit in your household for young and old. With a nod to our Northern Hemisphere friends, we have utilised a 'fall' favourite - Pumpkin and combined it with the sweet and ever-popular banana to create what may be our best muffin combo yet. We have utilised pumpkin seeds in the mix for an added boost of good fats and protein, while allowing them to be lunchbox friendly (if you leave off the walnuts, on top). Give these a whirl, you won't be disappointed! And they freeze perfectly!
