Kid-Friendly Banana Bread

I call them kid-friendly but really these are friendly for all ages. I made these for my 9 month old baby girl but I enjoyed them a lot! These sugar-free, gluten-free treats are a wonderfully healthy treat perfect for little hands to hold and enjoy.

Kid Friendly Banana Bread
yields 1 dozen small muffins
2 cups old fashioned gluten free oats
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a muffin or doughtnut tin.
In a food processor, grind the oats into a fine powder and transfer to a bowl. Add the baking powder, soda, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and salt.
Puree the bananas in the food processor and add to the oats along with the applesauce and melted oil.
Stir to combine.
Divide into 12 muffin tins and bake for 15 minutes. 
I used a doughnut tin I have but never get any use out of it. Whatever shape you do, keep these in small shapes so they stay moist.
Freeze to store extras.
