Healthy recipes Banana Ginger muffins (with Fresh ginger, steveia recipe)

March MADNESS!! Why mad? Winter is too long?;) Probably! But this year we really did not have many cold days, right? I was talking to the Fedex guys today that today really feels like Summer, do you agree?

Anywho, a friend of mine asked me, what's the difference between cupcakes and muffins? urhhhh....That's a good one! Here are my answers:

Salsa (eggless, oil free, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, weight loss)

1. Cupcakes are made of cakes while muffins are made of muffins....that's easy!
2. Cupcakes are confused muffins...
3. "If you throw a cupcake against a wall you get a sound like "pouf"; if you throw a muffin against a wall you get a sound like "thud" ! (who said this, anywho knows?;))
4. If you eat cupcakes, you gain a circle around your belly; if you eat muffins, you become extra sizes.
5. Cupcakes are always dressed up while muffins stay naked

6. "there are these two muffins baking in an oven. One of them yells, “Wow, it’s hot in here!” And the other muffin replies: “Holy cow! A talking muffin!” (by John Tierney)
7. Muffin is an ugly and over-sized cupcake (O&O??)
8. Muffins have a top while cupcakes are topless;))
9. Muffins and cupcakes, they both are equal!!!

That's why it's called March Madness!!! You just can not find the right answer! Anybody wanna help???
