Mini Banana Power Muffins

My kids love homemade banana bread, and I am certain they would be okay if I served it for after school snack every single day.  However, I am always on the look out for a new recipe to wow their taste buds.  With honey as the sweetener and protein powder to give a little extra nutrition, these little muffins are a great power breakfast or snack option for any growing (and hungry) family!
