easy banana bread recipe for toddlers

I have found an easy banana bread recipe for toddlers that you will love.  My toddlers always enjoy making this and I love that it is a (reasonably) healthy snack for them, and that I can enjoy it with a cup of coffee too! For this recipe you do not need a mixer, your toddler can do all of the steps themselves (with help and supervision of course!).

One of the main reasons I love making banana bread is that my toddlers love eating a few bites of a banana. They never eat the whole thing and I’m always left with a peeled, unwanted banana. I started putting these into zip lock bags (peeled) and freezing them. I then use them when I want to make banana bread, or our favorite strawberry banana smoothies. This tip also works great for overripe bananas that you would normally throw away.

Ingredients 

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups of self Raising flour
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • a pinch of cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 50 grams of  softened butter

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius
  2. In a large mixing bowl add all of dry ingredients and mix well.
  3. Add the milk, butter, eggs and bananas and keep mixing.
  4. Place the mix into a greased loaf pan. You can also put these into muffin trays to make banana muffins.
  5. Cook for 40-45 minutes.

This freezes very well, and is great for lunch box snacks.
