During the school holidays, I find most of us have kids that are always looking for food. I'm not sure if it's because they genuinely are hungrier, or they're just bored but my kids are certainly no exception to this - they're always looking for something yummy! This gluten free banana muffin recipe is quick and easy to make with only a few ingredients - my style of recipe!
If your kids can have dairy, feel free to use normal cows milk and choc chips, and if they can have egg, use the egg as well. If your kids can't have dairy and egg, this recipe ticks all the boxes and you can whip them up in a few minutes. Without egg, the muffins rise just as well and taste the same, they're just a bit lumpier looking on top. See my picture below with the egg free muffins on the left :-)
I made these muffins in my Thermomix and mashed the banana in my Thermomix, but if you don't have one just mash the banana by hand and mix it with the other wet ingredients. Then mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and make a well in the centre and pour in the wet ingredients. Stir until combined - that's it!
