Whole Wheat Brown Butter Banana Muffins + Dole Giveaway!

Whole Wheat Brown Butter Muffins Ahoy! Happy Friday, lovers! This week I’ve been pretty silent on Twitter and Facebook ’cause I went camping at the Oregon coast with my 3 year old, my in-laws, my sister-in-law and her two boys in a forrest down yonder up the jolly roger poll. We are brave souls.

In that time I got rained on, eaten my body weight in trail mix and failed miserably at avoiding all things that crawl. Oh, and taken up pirate talk, apparently. Don’t mind that. Minor detail.

I brought these fabulous muffins camping {with ye old braid beard who made me swab the deck} and we loved them. Hearty, healthy, moist and delicious. Perfect for make ahead snacks, breakfasts or traveling food.  Bananas in general are fabulous little portable snacks that make perfect fuel for the body before a run or bike ride–> unless you hate bananas….in which case, I’m sorry. I’ll eat a banana before a long run or throw it into a protein shake for breakfast. Super yummy.

I typically buy Dole bananas because that’s what my store carries. And, little known fact: Dole has dubbed Portland as a Top Banana City. Holla back Portland! So, in honor of me living in Portland, loving Dole and being part of a banana-friendly household, I’m giving away a pretty cool prize pack from my lovely friends at Dole :)

Whole Wheat Brown Butter Muffins 1 But first, here’s the printable for these muffins. You should make these this weekend! Seriously amazing and life-changing warm with butter and a drizzle of honey! Mmmmm….
