Gio & I have a banana smoothie every single morning, so there’s no shortage of bananas around here! We had a few that were suuuuper ripe & hubby suggested that I make banana muffins. I waited until Gabriella was napping & enlisted Gio to help me throw these together. Scroll to the bottom for the recipe card.

Gio LOVES to help me in the kitchen. I give him easy jobs like filling the tin with liners, pouring ingredients & stirring things together. I want him to establish a good relationship with the kitchen while learning valuable life skills.
