Banana Weet-Bix Muffins

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

A delicious Banana Weetbix Muffin recipe perfect for using up your overripe bananas and the crumbs at the bottom of the Weetbix box.

I have been making these Banana Weet-Bix muffins for my kids since they were in kindy, and whenever I would tell them I’m baking they always request I make up a batch of muffins. They are quick and easy, and make a wonderful addition to kids school lunches – or for afternoon tea with a cuppa!

Don’t forget to lightly grease your muffin tray, to avoid the mixture from sticking when baking. You can also use a silicone muffin tray. A bonus to this recipe is that it has very little sugar, so it’s a great snack to add to your kid’s school lunches.  It’s easy to make, and there’s no need for an electric mixer, just use a bowl and a spoon!

As I do with most of the muffins and cookies I bake, I bake a big batch of these and place them in the freezer to have available for lunch boxes – not just for the kids, but for the whole family.
