Lovely Little Daughter and I made some Mini Banana Muffins yesterday. Banana muffins are a big thing in our house as we always have bananas for porridge and I no longer throw them in the bin when they turn brown, now I make muffins. What did I do before I discovered banana muffins?!
The idea for muffins came when our daughter started to eat different foods and I wanted to give her something sweet but I really wanted to give her something a bit better than the different things I can buy from the bakery. Everything there seems to be made from wheat flower and surely uses white sugar. Making muffins for / with her is fun and it also allows me to make them a bit healthier by using brown flour and brown sugar and even add oat flakes. I always put less sugar than the recipe calls for and haven’t had a complaint so far.
We never tried mini ones, but they are perfect for little fingers and are gone in three bites…
Ingredients for 12:
2-3 tbsp melted butter or raps oil
1 tbsp milk
2-3 very ripe bananas – mashed
Oat flakes – optional
½ cup brown sugar OR ¼ cup brown sugar + one tbsp spoon Golden Syrup
1 cup wholegrain flour
½ tea sp baking soda
¼ tea spoon baking powder
Preheat the oven to 200C. Mix all Group 1 ingredients in one ball. In another ball mix all Group 2 ingredients. Add group 1 to group 2 and mix well. If needed add a tbsp of milk. Spoon the mixture into the paper cups and into your muffin tray. Bake for 25-30 min.
Hope you are having a nice Monday!
