They are naturally flavored with honey and bananas, which makes your house smell wonderful when baking. These are made plain but feel free to add in other ingredients such as nuts, chocolate chips, and dried fruits. I recommend you do a double batch because it will be gone within minutes. These are great for breakfast and after-school snacks as well.
