Zesty Lemon Glazed Banana and Blueberry Muffins

Zesty Lemon Glazed Banana and Blueberry Muffins

If you aren’t familiar with my background, then you’re probably wondering what qualifies me to tell you how you should cook your food.

Let me fill you in . . .

More than 15 years ago I lost 40 pounds.  Learning to cook light and an active lifestyle has been the key to keeping most of that weight off over the years.

This Zesty Banana Muffin recipe I’ve adapted from Weight Watchers is a perfect example of cooking light. The muffins were my offering for an office brunch and were a hit with my coworkers.
