Banana Bread – Ideal for kids to make from start to finish

I had my two boys in the kitchen baking since they were both about 18 months old……

I couldn’t resist the cute little aprons and chefs hats I had found.

Baking with me has become second nature to my little man and as his gotten older he wants to attempt the steps on he’s own.

I found this recipe ideal as it doesn’t electric machinery or nuts in the ingredients which a lot of banana recipes do(nut allergies)and for letting go a tad and allow him to be head chef.

I was there to supervise every step of the way – I preheated the oven, melted the butter and placed the baking tins into and removed them out the oven everything else my little Chef did.

I’m sure you could easily attempt this recipe into a Gluten free version – if you attempt it let me know how it turns out.

I have also attempted and succeeded in having 8 toddlers make this from beginning to end at the nursery school so I know any toddler or child can do this with some degree of supervision.
