Banana Muffins - Mini Muffins - Cake - Almond Milk

I have been making these muffins for years and they are perfect little bites for big and little kids alike! When Knox was a toddler, I needed to find some things that he would eat, because he was so incredibly picky! I love that these banana cake mini muffins are so simple and Fred loves them, too, which is a double score and makes me happy to keep batches in the kitchen for them to easily grab on the go!

Knox got a taste of the packaged processed mini-muffins and fell in love at first taste. I would rather be in control of the ingredients that I put into his mouth, so these make me feel {a tad} bit better about him eating them! Plus, they have bananas, which for me is a major win!

They are easy to whip up and make approximately two batches of mini muffins or you can cook one batch of mini and approximately a batch of full size. The greatest part is that they freeze well, so you don’t have to make them very often unless you have a house full!

They make a great on-the-go breakfast and for snacks. Try them once and I’m sure they will become a staple in your home, too!
