Super simple banana muffin recipe

My daughter is 9 and absolutely loves to cook all by herself, with me just managing the oven.  We have been making banana muffins for ages and it such a brilliant way to use up old bananas. I do hate food going to waste and I think it is so good for kids to see you use up old food. ( you can find my easy banana bread recipe here)

Don’t they look good?
