Perfect Pre-Game Anything Mini Muffins

IMG_3252

My son’s hockey team LOVES these muffins! I make banana, pumpkin or blueberry muffins for their pre-game snack. They usually eat them in the locker room while they get dressed an hour before game time. These muffins have a perfect ratio of carbohydrates with a small amount of protein from the greek yogurt, and they ALWAYS disappear! Make them for YOUR young athletes!
