I have finally perfected my banana muffins! These are delicious and moist with just a hint of chocolate flavor. The instant espresso powder in this may seem like a strange addition, but it is there to heighten the chocolate flavor and doesn't impart any coffee taste. The strawberries give little bursts of sweetness and leaving some chunks in the bananas brings out the banana flavor. Make sure to use previously frozen bananas OR very ripe ones-- you will have to put a LOT more sugar in to counteract a green or yellow banana in this recipe, which only calls for a quarter cup.

Very Good 4.4/5

I bought a Papa Murphy Mediterrean Pizza and decided to make it myself with less fat and calories! We LOVE pizza and become very fond of the Alfredo kind, it is the BEST! It makes eating spinach a wonderful treat!

Total time: 15 minutes. Fresh mozzarella is easier to slice when it is very firm. Place mozzarella in the freezer just until firm, and thinly slice. Any brand of prebaked pizza crust will work for this recipe.
