Banana Muffins

So we're back, after a bit of a hiatus due to the birth of our second daughter Lia.  And while I haven't had time to go online and post, I've built up plenty of blogging material with Emma. We baked and crafted and painted and learned new letters...

So lets start with these super easy, tasty Banana Muffins!

This is a great recipe and its been a while for us to use it. So when I was looking for an easy muffin recipe to send to Emma's school as a treat for the birth of her sister, I came across this one, on a forgotten, folded, hand written piece of paper among my numerous recipe books. It's so easy to do and really, really tasty; a great recipe to do with your child, so it was perfect for this occasion.  I'm so glad we've rediscovered it.
