| Family workshop | Chocolate & Banana Muffins Recipe
There’s a good side to ‘lockdown’ holidays! It’s the perfect opportunity to spend time with your family and do loads of activities together. Cooking is one of the activities that can be shared with children; They are never too young to start learning to prepare food and cook simple recipes.
Let’s begin with a chocolate recipe which everyone will love! Charlotte Dubeugny our local nutritionist, shares her secrets on making the most of this opportunity and on how to stay in shape. Let’s get our aprons out!
There’s 2 important points that I do need to underline which are :
- Insist that everyone washes their hands
- Be aware of safety – don’t give your children sharp knives and don’t let them run around carrying any utensils.
Banana & Chocolate Muffins Recipe
An easy recipe which is naturally low in added sugar. You can experiment using whatever you have available. 2 fruit compotes can replace the bananas and provided there are no nut allergies in the family you can throw in a handful of chopped nuts.

2 – Prepare 2 large bowls.
3 – Remove the skins from the bananas and place in a bowl.

5 – Ask your child to beat the eggs together in a cup with a fork or whisk.
6 – Add the eggs to the banana, along with the melted butter and the natural yogurt.
