Easy Banana Muffins Your Kids Will *LOVE*

Do you bake with your kids?

I don’t often.

I usually find it just descends into chaos, with everyone (and I mean everyone!) crying.

But as my kids are getting older, and I relax into parenting a bit more, (I know, I know, its been 6 years – I should have my s**t together by now), I am actually finding baking with the kids a little more enjoyable.

We whipped up these Easy Banana Muffins the other day, and NOBODY cried.

The muffins all got eaten as well, so it was win-win.

You can make these too – they are simple and easy. The recipe is up on our website – link in bio.

They make the BEST lunchbox snack too.

You can freeze these individually (if they last that long!) but wrapping them in some cling wrap, placing in an airtight container and popping them in the freezer. When you have to make the kids lunchboxes - just grab one out and they should defrost in time for morning tea! Or afternoon tea if your school does lunch first.

These easy banana muffins are really easy to make together and to help your kids grow their confidence in the kitchen.

We hope you love them as much as we do.

Oh and I lied, someone did cry, my 4 year old when he realised there were none left today. Guess what we will be doing tomorrow?
Easy Banana Muffins
Prep Time
Cook Time
Total Time
4 Medium Ripe Bananas
1 Cup Caster Sugar
1 Large Egg
2 Cups Self Raising Flour
2 Tbs Butter
2 Tbs Milk
Salt to taste
  1. Pre heat oven to 180 degrees. Grease and line 2 x 12 hole Muffin trays (see note below)
  2. In a bowl, mash bananas together. Make sure they are mashed well (you can use a food processor if you want). In a seperate small bowl, whisk the egg. Pour the egg mix in with the mashed bananas and mix well.
  3. Add all other ingredients and mix well. It should form a runny but firm batter.
  4. Using a desert spoon, scoop up a spoonful of the mixture and pop it into the muffin holders. There should be enough to fill each muffin hole around halfway. Remember they will rise as they bake.
  5. Pop them in the oven and cook for around 20 minutes or until a skwer is inserted and comes out clean.

You can make bigger muffins and only make 12 if you want. We made them smaller and made 24 as we have little people in the house.
