Those whole wheat banana muffins are one of my healthiest clean food recipes ever! NO processed food here only real food to create delicious, moist and nut-free banana muffins for kid.
My big girl is now at preschool. Emma has to bring her afternoon snack in her lunchbox everyday. And trust me, this generate lots of excitement to her! Each night she is coming back home telling me what friends had in their lunchboxes. She plan what she would like for the next day. Yesterday she said ‘ I want muffins mummy’. Phew! for a nut lover like me, it becomes a challenge to prepare healthy nut free baking recipe for her lunchbox. Well, yes there is a nut-free policy in her preschool. I understand how nut allergy can be dramatic for some kids.
SO I must challenge myself and do my best to develop new easy recipes for Emma’s lunchbox. Good bye favorite nut butter or almond meal! Plus, yesterday I had a long busy day and I was not really in the mood to bake. BUT I still wanted to be a good mum. I am sure you have been there too. You know that feeling when you want to makes your kids happy. But still, don’t have the energy to spend hours in the kitchen preparing the lunch box. Don’t you? SO yesterday night we work together on making simple whole wheat banana muffins with honey as a sweetener. Well, the recipe works with any liquid sweetener like maple syrup – my favorite – honey or apple syrup. But I was running out on maple syrup so we did whole wheat banana muffins with honey today.
It was ready in 10 minutes using only wholefood. I had 2 very ripe bananas on hand. The ugly one with black spots on the skin – and those actually inspired me to make banana muffins. It was a great way to use up those black spots ripe bananas. It also decrease the sweetener in the recipe. We choose wholewheat flour as a main flour ingredient to add lots of fibre. Those banana muffins will also work well if you use half whole wheat flour and half white wheat flour. Just in case you are running out of whole wheat and want to make those! In total we used only 5 ingredients to make those whole wheat banana muffins. It makes this recipe super fast!
Also, we used a 12-mini muffin tray to bake them. It is a great time saving kitchen tool for mums. Those mini muffin tray decrease the baking time to 12-15 min! Plus it is a perfect size for kids small hands. My girl loves those whole wheat banana muffins. It was a great alternative to my sugar free raspberry muffin recipe that I make very often too. The recipe makes about 24 mini muffins. I bake the batter in two trays of 12 mini muffins.
