toddler-approved recipes: guilt-free banana muffins

I couldn't believe my luck when I chanced upon a banana muffin recipe sans the butter. I kid you not. I did a double take just to make sure I read it right. I did! So, I'm going to do what feels right and share it with you. Here's the recipe with some tweaks here and there.

Guilt-free Banana Muffins

4 very ripe bananas

2 eggs

1/4 cup skim milk

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon


Mix together eggs, mashed bananas, sugar, milk and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Fold in the dry ingredients with the banana mixture. Pour into muffin cups and bake for 20-25 mins at 350f (or 175c). Makes around 10-11 muffins.

The muffins came out really moist and soft but not too sweet. You can add more sugar and bananas if you wish. The Mister found it a tad bland for his taste so he tried eating it with a dallop of banana yogurt and it was genius! It looked like icing on a cupcake and it gave the muffin a whole new flavor dimension. You should really to try it for yourself.

After an afternoon of swimming and water play, the little man was famished and devoured a giant banana muffin in minutes. But no worries, it was as healthy as could be.

I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs:
