Banana Pecan Muffins

When we have meetings I like to give people two sort of muffins. That way you barely can go wrong and people usually like one or the other. Since I had some bananas in my freezer I decided to use them.

I receive “The I love Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Cookbook” the other day in the mail and it was a perfect week for that. Because once a month I am doing a Veggie Week and it sometimes is difficult to find a meal for supper. Now I’ve got a book load full of recipes.
