Banana and Ricotta Muffins

Banana and Ricotta Muffins

Muffins are the boys favoruite morning tea and I am always making a different batch each Sunday for their lunchboxes.  These Banana and Ricotta muffins are a new addition to our rotation of muffins.  They are lightly sweetened and deliciously moist and most importantly the boys loved them so I know they are a winner.

You could add a handful of choc chips or sultanas into the mix as well for other variations.

On a side note how pretty are the Viola’s I have used in the background of these photos.  The yellow is so vibrant and when I was buying some vegetable seedlings on the weekend I knew these had to make there way into my basket.  The yellow is so cheerful and will last longer than any bunch of flowers.

    I make a double batch of this recipe at least once a week & freeze once cooled it makes a great lunch box snack for my three boys 7, 5 n 3 who always complain when we run out. I freeze the whole batch in a large snaplock bag and get a few muffins out in the morning when packing their lunches for school & they’ve defrosted by the time they eat their recess.

    Definitely recommend our family and friends always ask if you can taste the ricotta as most people dislike ricotta but you can’t even taste it incase your worried about that ingredient.
