Recipe: Easy Sugar-Free Banana Muffins (Baking with Kids)

So, we recently harvested not one, but TWO hands of bananas from our garden... which left us with a whole load of bananas ripening at the same time! 

Since it's the school holidays, I decided to get the kids into the kitchen and make some banana muffins together. This recipe has been adapted from Nigella Lawson's How to be a Domestic Goddess cookbook - it's a stir and bake recipe; super easy and quick and perfect for kids! Furthermore, no sugar is added into this bake, making this a healthy teatime treat!

Easy Sugar-Free Banana Muffins
Recipe by Baby Sumo
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
Makes 12-13

60g salted butter
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla bean paste or extract
12 small ripe bananas
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
A pinch of salt

1. Preheat oven to 190°C (no fan).

2. In a saucepan over medium low heat, melt the butter. Once melted, add the honey and vanilla bean paste and mix well. Leave to cool for 5-10 minutes.

3. Peel and mash the bananas using a masher. Add the butter mixture from Step 2 to the mashed bananas and mix well.

4. In another bowl, mix the plain flour with baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

5. Add dry ingredients (from Step 4) into the wet ingredients (Step 3) and fold gently until the ingredients are just mixed. Do not overmix.

6. Fill the paper cups until they are about 2/3 full and place into a muffin tray.

7. Place muffin tray into preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes. Leave in the pan to cool for 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack and cool for another 10 minutes.

Note: We used pisang mas (small bananas), which you can substitute with 4 large ripe bananas.
