Ingredients
 
 

  • 3 ripe bananas mashed
  • 50 g chopped dates
  • 50 g honey or maple syrup remember no honey for babies under one
  • 125 g Stork tub
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 250 g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50 g ground almonds

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan)/200°C/gas mark 6.
  • Line a muffin tin with 12 muffin cases.
  • Mash 3 ripe bananas in a bowl. Blend together 50g chopped dates and 50g honey or maple syrup until you have a paste. I use a small processor to do this that came with my hand held stick blender, which does the job perfectly but any blender or food processor should be ok.
  • Beat the date and honey paste with 125g Stork until well mixed, then beat in 2 eggs.
  • In a clean bowl sift together 250g plain flour, 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda and 1 tsp baking powder. Stir through 50g ground almonds. Fold this mixture into the Stork mixture, then stir through the bananas.
  • Spoon into the muffin cases then bake in the centre of the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and firm to the touch.
  • Remove from the oven, leave in the tin for a few minutes then cool on a wire rack.
