Seeded Banana Muffins

Don’t you just love the smell of cinnamon? I know we are only in June but Autumn will roll around quicker than you can blink. But for now I am savouring summer and keeping Autumn alive by cooking a batch of my seeded banana muffins. These came about because I was trying to develop a recipe that my 10 month old could eat as a snack. Sometimes it’s hard to find two different meals in the morning or out and about, so making something we can both eat is welcome.

I simply doctored my cinnamon and banana bread recipe and took out the salt and sugar for these muffins, then I just miss out the larger seeds for Evie. These have a subtle sweetness, just enough to curb the sugar craving. But if you wanted a little more, you could brush on honey or chocolate. I’m really happy with the way they turned out and I hope you enjoy them. If you plan on making a batch, they should last for a couple of days in an air tight container.
