*a good life wednesday* with a batch of banana muffins...

today i am sharing a lovely moment of our week with you...
purely because i know you will whip these up once & love them for ever more...
banana muffins...
the way i've been eating them for years...
i love them...my kiddos love them...the hubster loves them...
sarah at a *a beach cottage* would love them...
a big batch to share with all the readers of a *b.c's Good Life Wednesday*...

i whip these up just before school pick-up so they are still warm & sooo tempting when the kiddos get home....
more tempting than sweets...biscuits...all that rubbish they hope for after school...
they have 2 whole cups of banana in them...
how brilliant do i feel about this...
as i have a non-fruit eater...
actually she does eat apples....apparently most days...!?
but that's it...
except in banana muffins...

yep...i am aware it has sugar & vanilla essence & eggs & blah blah...
but in my book...a banana is a banana...no matter what!
so for a good life wednesday treat...
grab the kiddos...
grab the big ol mixing bowl...
grab those gorgeous muffin cases you've been saving...
whip up a divine batch of heavenly muffins...

they make homework a pleasure...{i promise}...
& they're ever so healthy...
& they are quite lovely with ice cream...
& quite lovely with lashings of icing...
& they are really healthy...did i mention that...?

  2. I think I shall be making some of these....altho it would be even better if I could sit with you chatting and drinking tea while you made them, would love that :) xx

  3. Thank you...I will be making these today. Its a lovely cool rainy day here and I just happen to have muffin ready bananas that I refuse to let go to waste (not that I ever do though) as bananas are $1000 a kilo here now. Ill let you know how they go. Megan xx

  4. What a lovely post! The muffins sound wonderful.

  5. "big bowl - bung it in" I love your recipe writing style Melissa!

    I made banana muffins last night with blueberries inside, it's what I make when I want to send them off with a little comfort in their lunchbox. Doots' first day of kinder today!

    Bananas have skyrocketed in price here, because of the cyclone, so I don't know if we'll have excess in the fruit bowl for a while :(

  6. I made banana bread last night from the Betty Crocker cookbook. I had some old bananas that I needed to use. Next time I will make muffins. The vanilla in this recipe sounds really good too.
    Happy Day, Melissa!
