Banana Muffins

There’s a little glimpse of sunshine peeking through the windows and it tricked us into thinking it’s warmer than it is and forgetting that it’s only about 10C outside.

We popped outside to give the chickens our food scraps and quickly ran back in to get warm. On the plus side, one of them had just laid and the egg was toasty warm.

Here’s a quick mid-week recipe and if you are quick they’ll be ready before school pickup and will be perfect for their lunchboxes tomorrow.

I have used wholemeal flour but if you don’t have any on hand, use all-purpose flour and add a handful of nuts, sultanas or dark choc chips if you feel like it, just remember to not over mix.
