Ingredients

  • ½ cup Mashed Bananas equivalent to 2 small bananas
  • ½ cup Unsweetened Apple sauce
  • ¼ cup Melted Butter or light olive oil or melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup Milk of Choice can use breastmilk, baby formula, or dairy-free milk
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice or apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup Quick Oats
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • cup Shredded Carrots

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line two 12-hole mini muffin trays with oil spray. Set them aside.
  • Peel, mash the bananas with a fork and measure 1/2 cup - precision is important to avoid gummy muffins.
  • Place the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl and combine with applesauce, melted butter, milk, and lemon juice.
  • Stir in the remaining dry ingredients: flour, quick oats, baking powder, baking soda, and shredded carrots.
  • Fill the muffin holes with about 1-2 tablespoons of batter.
  • Bake in the center rack of the oven until golden-brown, and a pick inserted in the center of the baby muffins comes out clean - about 15-18 minutes.
  • Cool them down immediately on a wire rack.
  • Serve plain or with fruits and yogurt on the side.

Storage

  • Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days or freeze in zip lock bags and thaw 3 hours before eating.
