We've been making Apple Banana Muffins since Kenya and Chloe were toddlers! We would go on long walks around our neighborhood with their double stroller looking at trees, cars, singing and giggling. Along our usual walking path our neighbors had branches overflowing with oranges, plums, kumquats, and apples. Kenya loved bringing a tote bag along to pick fruit, then we would go home and cook up something delicious. This is exactly how I was as a kid loving every minute of picking apples from our local orchard, so the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

You can make these muffins with all kinds of different apples. Some of my favorites are Gala, Fuji, Pippin if you want them to be a little more tart or any good baking apple. The bananas in the muffins give these Apple Banana Muffins a great texture while also adding some potassium. 

Naturally sweet Apple and Bananas Muffin make a great breakfast, snack or lunch, but are also incredible to freeze so you always have a batch at the ready. Keep some on hand so you have the perfect portable treat for family walks around your own neighborhood!
