On the first Tuesday of every month, Creating Together families come together to create a healthy muffin to share for snack. This month, we tried our hand at some healthy Banana and Raisin Muffins!
Hope you can make it at our next Family Baking activity in March!
Benefits of Bananas and Raisins
One of the key ingredients in this recipe is bananas. Among the worlds most popular fruits, bananas contain fair amounts of fibre, a number of antioxidants, and several nutrients – B6, Potassium, and Vitamin C to name a few.
The other key ingredient in this recipe is raisins – which are packed with energy and rich in fibre, vitamins, and minerals. Raisins are naturally sweet and high in sugar and calories, but taken in moderation, they can aid digestion, boost iron levels, and keep your bones strong.
So in addition to being super healthy, making these mini muffins is easy and fun to do with your children – so take a look at the recipe card below, and enjoy!
Did you know…
- You can freeze any muffin! Bake, completely cool and freeze in any air tight container for up to 3 months. Thaw on a counter for 3-4 hours or overnight.
- Have an egg allergy? Want to try a vegan option? Substitute eggs with mashed banana, pumpkin, or applesauce (one-fourth cup of the purée per egg). Another option is ground flax or chia seeds (whisk together 1 tablespoon of ground chia or flaxseeds with 3 tablespoons of water until fully absorbed and thickened).
