    This has been my go-to recipe for a couple of years now, anytime I have a ripe banana on hand. We usually add some Hu chocolate gems and chopped walnuts to ours. It’s so good!

    Love this as a way to “dress up” the Simple Mills mix! It’s a favorite with everyone in my family from my parents to my 2 year old nephew and I feel good about serving something that’s both healthy and delicious.

    This was so delicious!! Highly recommend for a simple, quick fix for any banana bread cravings 🙂

    I love this recipe and I feel better about giving it to my kids as a snack. I have made as described many times, and not sure if it’s just me, but it takes quite a bit longer (like 30 min longer) than recommended to cook through. I now cook it at 350 rather than 325, but still takes longer. For that reason, I struggle to get the desired texture. For a fun change, I sometimes swap the banana muffin mix for Simple Mills pumpkin bread/muffin mix, add some chocolate chips, and bake as muffins.

    We love this recipe in our house. Instead of the collagen peptides, I add a scoop of Truvani protein powered. Baking it in a muffin tin makes for a perfect snack because I know we’re all getting our fat + fiber + protein in!
