This recipe could not be simple, requiring some staple ingredients and a couple of bowls—no need for any fancy kitchen gear or lots of washing up.
Start by preheating the oven to 180˚C and lightly greasing some muffin tins. In a small bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, mashed banana, yoghurt, eggs and vanilla.
