A few weeks ago, I was browsing through my new Pampered Chef Spring/Summer Catalog, and got excited about all the new Spring and Summer kitchen and pantry items that have come out to add to my kitchen and give my review. While I was browsing the catalog, I looked over at the fruit bowl and saw three bananas that desperately needed my attention. Banana Muffins sounded good. So, I put on my apron gathered up some ingredients to make some Banana Muffins but I wanted to add something a little sweet and special to them, I decided to grab my Sweet Apple Sprinkle from the pantry. I was lucky enough to have just the right amount I needed for this delicious muffin topping. These muffins were the perfect solution to those bananas that were crying out from the fruit bowl.
