My daughter sent me this recipe for easy cleanup banana muffins. She had recently made them with her daughter. My toddler grand daughter, Avery,  is featured in the banana bread recipe posted on January 28. This banana muffin recipe is a lot easier on the ‘dishpan hands.’ All ingredients are added to a quart sized zip-lock bag! Then children can have fun mashing them together. (Warning: parental guidance necessary :-))

This little one remembered that earlier in the day he had learned 8 plus 4 equal 12. It was such fun to hear  him make the math  connection!

All in all, a recipe that makes everyone happy!
