These Gluten free and Low Syn (when using oats as your Hex B) muffins are the perfect morning snack that ticks all my mid-morning sugar fix boxes. Pair them with a cup of tea or coffee and … yum!
The 2 Syns come from the mashed banana. I have seen many people use Quark as frosting, which works totally fine if you like it. Personally, I am not a fan of Quark on sweet things so I treat myself to some cream cheese if I need to bump up my Syns for the week. The cream cheese can also be used as part of your HEXA.
