Banana Bread Muffins - Toddler Approved

Since I'm currently smack dab in the middle of trying to figure out what my own toddler will eat, I decided to start a little series of easy "Toddler Approved" food that is healthy and homemade. 

I'm not sure I've met a toddler who doesn't love bread/muffins of any kind. My little boy loves the taste of bananas, but he won't eat them anymore so I decided to grind them up and trick him into eating them again.
He loves these muffins and to be honest, so do we. They taste exactly like banana bread and are pretty irresistible. 
Something else I've found pretty irresistible are these silicone muffins holders. The muffins are much easier to remove from the liner than the standard paper ones, the muffin tin stays clean and of course I love that they are reusable! I got mine at Marshall's, but you can find some here.
