Banana bread muffins. These delicious healthier muffins are easy to make and can be ready in just over 30 minutes. A great recipe for kids to make too!
Folks, even if you’re on a New Year health kick at the moment you’ll love these healthier banana bread muffins. They’re only 133 calories each!
Plus you can be sure these muffins are absolutely delicious too.
Why? Well because I’ve based these amazing muffins on my winning low calorie banana bread recipe.
That tried and tested recipe is one I’ve made for my family, friends and work colleagues for years.
This banana bread muffin recipe is such an easy recipe to make too.
No electric mixer is required. It’s all made by combining two bowls of ingredients. One with wet ingredients and one with dry ingredients.
What you’ll get with this recipe is perfect banana muffins every time. In just over half an hour!
It’s a great recipe for using up any leftover bananas and simple enough for kids to do too.
Each tasty muffin has an amazing moist texture packed with banana and cinnamon flavours.
They’re healthier than a standard banana bread muffin as my recipe uses a mixture of wholemeal and plain flour.
Also I don’t use any butter. Instead vegetable oil and Greek yogurt are used as a substitute.
