As a college kid, it’s hard to get breakfast in before that 8 AM financial accounting class. So, I have a proposition: Spiced banana pear muffins. Make a batch of these guys Sunday night, and you’ve got a grab and go breakfast ready for every day of the week. These muffins will be waiting for you at 7:57am when you’re running out of your apartment for class. Be careful though, your roommates might snatch ’em before you do.
