Banana Bread Muffins

You asked for some great ideas for your kiddos! I am here to deliver.

This is the SO EASY!!! If you watched me prepare this on Facebook live recently, you know it took me around 10-15 minutes to prep and put it in the oven. It is super simple and delicious!


This recipe meets many of the most necessary features:


easy ✅

healthy ✅

quick ✅

delicious ✅


There are many ways to customize this recipe to your or your family’s personal preferences. The original recipe does NOT call for any sweetener, but if you are trying to get your kiddos to eat healthier, you could try adding a little honey or agave nectar to this recipe. However, with the bananas being ripe, it will add a lot of sweetness that you may not need. Experiment if you desire! I also thought they would taste delicious if you added some fresh blueberries to the muffins which I may have to do next time I bake this one. Another change you can make is to eliminate the nuts or add in different nuts. I really like walnuts in this recipe, but they aren't absolutely required. So many options!


This recipe would fall into the categories of #Paleo, #Whole30, #CleanIngredients


I hope your family enjoys this as much as my family did!
