Low Fat Banana & Coconut Muffins

Who says you can’t eat muffins when you’re trying to control your weight?!

Here I have devised a low fat recipe with hardly any sugar and have relied on the banana for sweetness and to add moisture to this moreish muffin

Great for adults and children alike. Plenty of good energy being supplied and tasty too!

Hope you all enjoy them. See you soon friends. Much love, D x

Cocoa Banana Sponge

Cocoa & Banana both from the tropics is an amazing combination! This sponge cake came out super moist, light and airy.

Both my son and his grandfather enjoyed it. It’s great, that it’s low in fat and the moisture and decadence comes from the lush bananas. Do let me know how you like it. Have a wonderful day, much love D x
