Breakfast Muffins

  We call these breakfast muffins because they are eaten mostly at breakfast time but they can be eaten as treat/snack any time of the day, I made them for my 9 month old for baby led weaning, she can be a fussy one and still prefers milk to food, I think mainly because of teething, both our youngest suffered a lot with teething, so sometimes she’s more interested than others but it’s breakfast and lunch time that seems to be the be the worst, so we try to find more interesting foods for her to try.    

These are great for using up over ripe bananas and great for freezing too which is good for us because it means we don’t have to get them all eaten in a few days or waste any, when they are defrosted they taste just as fresh. Another bonus is there’s not to much mess and it’s a pretty easy recipe.  All the dry ingredients in one bowl and the rest in the blender, fold wet into dry and divide into a muffin tin. I use the apple cider vinegar and baking soda as a rising agent in this recipe, it all started when I ran out of baking powder and needed a substitute and it’s worked great as I always have plenty of both I haven’t bothered using baking powder for a while. So here’s the recipe.
