If you're looking for something easy to bake with the children over the Easter holidays, these muffins are a great option. The method is so simple as it merely involves adding the dry ingredients to the wet ones, and if your little ones are banana fans they'll love the results. These muffins make for a somewhat less-guilty treat to enjoy with a glass of milk or a cuppa.
