Breakfast Muffins

These flourless muffins are packed full of protein from the use of ground almonds. They are a great breakfast if you are trying to avoid sugar as these muffins only use the sweetness of banana and dried cranberries. Make sure you use overly ripe bananas so the mixture has a soft consistency and a sweet flavour.
