    Made these this morning with my 2 year old and they were a bit hit! A simple recipe that she was able to help with and blueberries added a nice flavour burst. I used wholemeal spelt flour (& baking powder) and was really impressed with the texture and how well they rose. I’m keen to make these again with a stronger banana taste. Can I add an additional banana without needing to alter the rest of the ingredients?

    Can u freeze these?

  3. AvatarMegan says:

    30 minutes later and mine are still mush! Looks like these are a busy 🙁

  4. I found these anaemic, tasteless and really dry. I followed the recipe exactly and my 11 month old spat out his first mouthful and refused to try any more!

  5. AvatarAmy says:

    I have never cooked anything at 180 degrees for 15 minutes so I thought it was a little weird after 20 minutes they were still mush. I turned the oven up to 350 finished cooking and they taste terrible.

    I followed the recipe but put into muffin cases (they stick so avoid that) also after 15 mins they still looked pale, ended up cooking for 25 minutes and they were perfect. My LG loved them!!

  7. AvatarCK says:

    How many muffins does this make? Not sure how many cases to use?

    I’ve cut out 1/2 cup milk and added 1/4 cup Greek yoghurt and 2 tblsp of apple sauce for a bit of extra sweetness!! Absolutely perfect!! Baby Maya, 9 months old loves them, and so does Nanny and mummy 😀

    Made this today. My 1st time using a SR flour and I’m no baker either so I don’t know what’s wrong. Followed the whole recipe but it was very sticky that I have to put 1/2 cup more of milk. Did it for 15 mins as told but I’m doubting that it’s cooked and it’s so salty, too. Tried to cook a little more, still salty and the bottom is hard as rock. And I wish I put more banana, I couldn’t taste it at all. 😖😞

  10. AvatarDarice says:

    Followed recipe exactly and these turned out like pink glue, terrible. Threw 2 pans out:(

  11. AvatarLisa Welter says:

    how many mini muffins does this make?

  12. AvatarAshley says:

    These are great! I modified, added ⅛ cup sugar and an extra banana to sweeten. I did not have SR Flour so I added baking powder and salt. They turned out perfect! Nice and fluffy with good flavor. I made a double batch and came out with 62 mini muffins. Will definitely make again!

  13. AvatarLaurie says:

    Mine were terrible. Baked at 350′ for 25 minutes. Still white. Taste and texture is like thick paste. And they stuck to the muffin papers. Total fail. No sugar, no butter, no egg?? I used an all purpose gluten free flour blend, as I don’t know what SR Flour is.

      Hi Laurie. SR is self raising and is the raising agent. This would explain the paste. Will edit the recipe to be clearer. Thanks for the feedback. Tanya

  14. AvatarLeeann says:

    Mine turned out great! Took slightly longer than 15 min (20 all up). Next time, I wouldn’t mix the berries in with the mixture as some muffins didn’t have any in them. Tip would be to put them in individually into the muffins once spooned in the trays. Lacking a little bit of flavour, so next time I’ll put in a bit more banana, but all in all a great quick recipe and my 17 month old loves them!

  15. AvatarKim says:

    My little has a milk protein allergy. What would you suggest to use instead of milk? Can i replace milk with almond milk and not have to add anything else to the recipe?

  16. Made these a couple of hours ago and my 11 month old spat a piece out and refused to take anymore. I don’t blame him as they are rubber like and flavorless.

    I wish I’d read the comments before I tried. Followed the recipe to the letter and found that the muffins had rose after 15 minutes but were really pale and stodgy, popped them back in until they went golden (approximately a further 15 minutes) and they were still mostly raw in the middle. Would not recommend at all.

  19. AvatarGladys says:

    Made this an hour ago, and my 3 yo’s is now asking for seconds. I put in twice the amount of ripe banana. Almost twice the cooking time. I think the key is to make sure you use very ripe banana otherwise it will not be sweet. Hope that helps. Love this no added sugar recipe.

  20. AvatarJordan says:

    Do these need refrigerated after?

  21. AvatarNicole says:

    I’m surprised about all the negative comments about these! They’re not bad at all! I did add 2 bananas and baked at 350F for 25 minutes. They’re a little gooey but overall they’re pretty good and baby girl loves them!
