Love adding bananas to muffins for natural sweetness and moisture. I recently made banana muffins too, with buckwheat-quinoa flour ; and enjoyed it very much. Next time, I'll try to add some yogurt :p

What a great flavor combination. I've made apple-olive oil muffins before, and love them, so I can easily imagine the banana-olive oil combo, and I'm sure it'd be delicious. Also love how you put the banana slice on top!
