Healthy Banana Nut Muffins

I was inspired by Betty Crocker and wanted to make this into a healthy version. So I decided to share this Healthy Banana Nut Muffin recipe for how I made it. One of the different methods I used is, I mashed my bananas, froze them overnight, and thawed them the next day. Freezing the bananas provides a softer texture to the muffins. Also, I used xylitol as the main sweetener instead of sugar.
