Ricotta, Banana & Honey Muffins

Another recipe from the latest BBC Australian Good Food magazine. I’ll admit, this is from the “helping kids to cook” section, but it looked and sounded so good I had to give it a go.

I almost didn’t cook the banana as I was having a case of the can’t be fudged-s, and I thought it would be good with raw banana. But I did as the recipe instructed and it was delicious. It helped to soften down the banana, and the warmness of it was perfect with the hot, freshly toasted muffin. Ricotta and honey were the perfect compliment to go with, and it proved to me, Nutella isn’t the only thing truly awesome with sliced banana on carbs.

    Hey don’t you think that many recipes these days seems to target children? William Angliss emailed me the other day about new kids cooking course. Must be the effects of masterchef junior

  2. I love kids recipes! They’re usually easy and tasty, although I don’t always ask an adult to help with using a sharp knife. lol. These almost dessert-like, and healthy too.

  4. Hehe, I just did a story on “cooking with kids” but I hadn’t seen the website that you got this dish from. I will have to visit, I have three kids at home at the moment and I had 7 the previous night (borrowed children) so we are making meals that kids can prepare too. This looks so delcious, I am sure my kids will enjoy both the making and eating!

  6. Hella yeah! Breakfast tomorrow is sorted.
    Kids recipes are the best. My favourite peanut butter and choc squares were from the kids section of Nigella’s book. Win.
