Best banana & fruit muffins 🍌

You may be thinking “enough of the muffin making now!” as we have done a lot of muffins recipes over the last few months, and indeed we have! But we really love this banana muffin recipe and as it’s been requested over on our Instagram channel, we’re here to share it…

This is one of those adaptable muffin recipes where the base mix can be added to with whatever fresh fruity addition you might like. We’ve made it with extra fresh or frozen blueberries, frozen raspberries and chunks of rhubarb embedded into the top. You could try blackberries, blackcurrants…whatever fresh berry or fruit you think would work!
