  • 3 tsp runny honey (or 3 tsp sugar for under 1s)

<ol> <li>Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas Mark 5.</li> <li>Line a muffin tin with paper cases.</li> <li>Melt the butter and honey in a saucepan.</li> <li>Mix together all the dry ingredients in a bowl.</li> <li>Mash the banana and mix with the honey and butter.</li> <li>Add this mixture and the milk to the dry ingredients, stirring until mixed lightly.</li> <li>Spoon into the muffin cases (I sprinkle a few oats on top just to make them look a bit prettier!).</li> <li>Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown and firm to touch.</li> </ol>

    I had to make these in a vegan version for a friend's son we used agave syrup instead of honey and pure spread instead of butter. They were delicious and 3 children ate 6 muffins!

    What can I use instead of honey as my little boy is 9 months old..thanks

    My 2 wouldn't eat them, but I think that says more about them than the muffins! I thought they were yummy

    Really nice recipe. First time they seemed a bit dry, so I used 3 tablespoons of honey, rather than 3 teaspoons when I made them again. To make them chocolatey I'm going to try 75g flour/25g cocoa powder next time.

    Oops sorry that should have been a 10 for ease or finding ingredients! All in most cupboards I would say.

    Kids love them. I love them. Easy to make. Everyone is happy! Got it from '375 recipes for babies, toddlers and children' by Bridget Wardley and Judy More and would definately recommend the book.
