Moist and Healthy Banana Muffin

My Taiwanese friend loves to have new guest (mainly my friends and collegues) coming to his small apartment with a 360 degrees downtown view of Montreal. I am always bringing new people almost every week to cook at his place and enjoy the food. This time, for the vegetarian theme, he made one of the most delicious muffin I have ever tasted, even better than the ones from Tim Hortons. They are large, moist, healthy and have the exact amount of sweetness, this recipe is a must try. As I have some catch-up to do with my friends, I forgot to take some step-by-step pictures of this recipe.
