Fruity Banana Muffins Recipe

The children love to bake and one thing we bake regularly is mini muffins – as they’re just so easy. We love making banana muffins as a way to use up bananas that are past their best and make nutty banana muffins, banana chocolate chip muffins and these, fruity banana muffins.

What fruit do you use in these fruity banana muffins?

For these muffins we use cheap mixed dried fruit but you could use any dried fruit you have to hand – raisins, cranberries, sultanas, dried berries. Whatever fruit you use would still give you fluffy and light muffins with a wonderful fruity flavour.

These easy banana muffins make a great breakfast or snack for the children and they freeze really well. It means we can have healthy, homemade muffins whenever we want them. They also keep well in an airtight container for a few days too.

If you’re looking for other banana cake recipes, check out our banana bread recipe, fruity banana loaf and banana pancakes too. They’re all recipes the whole family will love. You can see all our overripe banana recipes here.

These are pretty much staples for baking in any home kitchen and once you have them you won’t need to replace them often.
