Banana Prune Muffins



Muffins seem to be a regular fixture in our house these days. Apparently, when you have a child with teeth, who discovers the joys of solid foods, you actually have to feed them like 5 times per day!! Who knew?! So during the little one’s afternoon nap, I have been spending a quick second in the kitchen whipping up a dozen or so snacks that are the perfect size for little chubby hands to grab. The Spinach Muffins  were such a hit that they seemed to disappear in a matter of minutes which left me yet again snack-less and with a cranky baby. It’s back in the kitchen me!

Cue the banana prune muffin.  Baby tummy satisfied and the household is happy again. Let’s hope these last at least one hour this time around!


What You Will Need

1 cup mashed bananas

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
