Quick and Easy Banana Apple Muffin Recipe

This is one of our kid’s favourite muffin recipes. I quite regularly include it in my kids school lunch boxes.

It’s a fun recipe for the kids to help prepare as well. If cooking with young kids I find it best to cut up the apples before they start to help.

Ingredients:

  • 2 x Apples – finely diced
  • 2 x very ripe Bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups of Wholemeal Self Rising Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 2 x Eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Honey
  • 1/2 cup of Low Fat Milk

Instructions:

Start the oven preheating to 180C (350F).

Stir the flour and cinnamon together in a large mixing bowl. Then add the apple and mix it through.

Add the eggs, oil, banana and milk and stir it through.

Grease a medium size muffin tray and fill the 12 muffin spots equally with the batter and place in the preheated oven for 20-minutes, or until cooked.

Update: I originally tried with recipe with 3-apples, but that was too much apple. The 2-apples in the revised recipe above works out much better.
