  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 75ml milk

  • 1 tsp baking powder heaped

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

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

  • 25g unsalted butter

  • 55g porridge oats

  • 100g plain flour

  • 2 large ripe bananas


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

Handy Hint

I dont bother with the cases and just grease the tin. They pop out easily.

    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.
