Breakfast is simply better with these easy-to-bake Banana Walnut Muffins!

We know from elementary level lessons in healthy eating that bananas are a great source of potassium and walnuts provide our body with healthy fat and protein. Both are important, but these muffins feature another star ingredient that offers major support to your digestive health – flax seeds!
