Here is an easy banana cupcake recipe kids can make and enjoy as a delicious afternoon snack. The ingredients are commonly found in the kitchen pantry and can be done without a great deal of mess and fuss. Enjoy!
I confess I’m not a fancy cook, a simple recipe suit us just fine. Possum (aged 3 years) and I love any opportunity to cook together, we delight in continually cementing our bond as we pour, sift and mix ingredients. That said, her severe egg allergy can make us feel somewhat limited in what we can make, however, I always like to prove to the both of us that there are many great things she can in fact eat that is egg free and delicious, like these banana cupcakes.
I love that cooking involves children following simple verbal instructions. It’s also a great way to teach them how to listen, retain information and recognise that sometimes there is a process to go through and order can be very important.
Mash, mash, mash… 😉

This is such a simple and enjoyable banana cupcake recipe for kids to make and eat! There really isn’t much to it and they can be frozen and thawed when a sweet treat is needed. The fresh banana added to the icing is a nice addition, however, you may wish to add dried banana chip instead.
