    Yummy – I bet they taste uber-great warm with a cup of tea! So hungry now!

    Do you think ok for Millie’s age? How do you think they would last if frozen and defrosted as a snack when needed?

    • Lydia says:

      Definitely! They’re really moist so would be easy for Millie to eat. And if she likes bananas these will go down a treat. I haven’t tried freezing them but give it a go, it may just make them a little dry when they’re defrosted x

  4. This looks really yummy and moist and easy to make (so a winner in my book!). Interested to know what vegetable oil you use. I have been using olive oil where recipes say vegetable oil, love the taste personally, but is getting a bit costly!

    • Lydia says:

      You’re right, these are really moist thanks to the banana and orange juice. I use sunflower oil when baking muffins. Just like you I love a good quality olive oil in salad dressings and cooking x

  5. These look really good. Hopping over via Tasty Tuesdays and given you a follow on Bloglovin.
