I love doing something a little bit fun with food. It always amazes me that the minute I put something in bite or ball form the kiddies devour it. Mr 7 yr old hates bananas. He can sniff them out from a mile away and will very rarely eat something containing it. Now these Banana Bread Bites he loved. I don’t get it!?

These have been a huge hit in our house. So much so my partner even Facebooked a picture of them and mentioned how fab they were. Now when he posts something on Facebook it must be good!

I freeze these in lots of two for the kiddies lunchboxes. By doing them in ball form they go s much further than a traditional banana bread. I use a cake pop maker for these. I have noticed they go on special all the time for $10. We use our all the time and it has been a great purchase for us however I know not everyone will want to purchase one. You can use those little mini baby muffin cases in place of a cake pop maker.

Banana Bread Bites

  • Author: The road to loving my Thermo Mixer
  • Total Time: 30
  • Yield: 35 1x


  • 3 very ripe small bananas
  • 155g self raising flour
  • 80g maple syrup, honey or sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp golden syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • pinch of salt


  1. Preheat cake pop maker. Alternatively preheat oven to 180C and line a mini muffin tray with cases.
  2. Place bananas, maple syrup and golden syrup into bowl. Speed 4 / 5 seconds. Scrape down.
  3. Place remaining ingredients into bowl. Speed 3 / 10 seconds. Scrap down. Repeat.
  4. Pour a teaspoon of mixture into each hole of the cake pop maker. Alternatively, place into the prepared muffin cases and bake for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Your machine will have a ready light light up once your bites are cooked through however always check your machines manual as they all differ.
  6. Check that the bites are completely cooked through before removing.


But I don’t have a Thermo Mixer

  • Simply mash the bananas with a fork and combine all ingredients in a bowl with a spoon.

    I love banana bread and this makes a nice new way to present it to guests. We also have two very ripe bananas atm so I’ll give this a go – thanks! We don’t have a cake pop maker so I’ll likely just make them as cupcakes for now!
