Author Notes

We have a never ending search for the perfect muffin. We like to eat a muffin with a cup of Chamomile tea after dinner. Our restless souls keep us developing new recipes. This is our Banana Muffins recipe with an added complexity and it is good. the cranberries add a little chewiness and the ubiquitous streusel topping adds the sweetness we like after dinner. —Tom and Anita Morgan
