Healthy Mini Banana Muffin Recipe

Have you bought food for your little one and read the label and found ingredients in there you didn’t understand? When I became a parent for the first time to Emilia, I often found there were all sorts of nasties in baby and toddler food.

So I began to experiment and make Healthy and simple treats for Emilia and now for my second daughter, Adelyn too. I knew that if I made the treats for Emilia and Adelyn, then I would know exactly what went into their treats. I want to share some of our favourites so that you can also try them at home for your little ones.

Here is my recipe for Healthy Mini Banana Muffin Recipe:


  • 1 cup of self-raising flour or 1 cup of plain flour of your choice (i.e. wholemeal, spelt) and 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 pear
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste or ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of milk (cow or an alternative is fine)


  1. Preheat oven to 160C Degrees Celsius (fan-forced) or 180C for conventional oven.
  2. On a plate, mash the banana with a fork.
  3. Place the oil and egg in a bowl and whisk until blended.
  4. Add the vanilla bean paste (honey or maple syrup optional for this step) or cinnamon to the oil mixture.
  5. Add the oil mixture and bananas alternatively to the flour and gently blend with a spoon or whisk.
  6. Add the milk if required.
  7. Spoon mixture into greased muffin tray or muffin patty cups.
  8. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until cooked, test with a toothpick or skewer to see if it comes out clean without any batter stuck to toothpick or skewer.
  9. Take muffins out from muffin tray and cool on cooling rack.

Please comment below about what your little one’s think about the muffins, would love to hear your feedback 😀
