Banana Monkey Muffins

Last month I guest posted over at the Crafting Chicks and shared these adorable {and super easy!} Monkey Banana Muffins as part of their summer series for kids. The theme was ‘Rainforest’ and I was supposed to come up with a snack idea. So here is a fun summer snack idea for the kiddos!

Monkey Muffins || Cute snack idea for preschool or kids of any age for that matter!

These delicious little monkeys not only look cute, but they’re fun to eat! My 2 boys {ages 4 and 6} were my taste testers and they loved them! So these muffins are kid-approved for sure.

Notice: They have hair-do’s. Ha!

Yep, I used a banana bread mix! Don’t shoot me! But you can use your favorite banana bread recipe and cook it in muffin tins…or buy a box like I did! hehe!

Make your banana muffins according to the directions on the box.

Let the muffins cool before decorating.

Banana Monkey Muffins || Cute snack idea for kids!

Frost each muffin with chocolate frosting. Notice how I gave each monkey a “hair-do” with a frosting swirl?! This one sorta looks like Elvis to me. lol

Place 1 vanilla water for the mouth, break the second vanilla wafer in half and place them on for the ears. Place the candies for the eyes and then draw 2 nostrils and a mouth with the black gel frosting. And done!

Monkey Muffins || Perfect for a Rainforest themed preschool or snack time for kids!

Super cute and very yummy! Your kids will love these monkey muffins!

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When not crafting, I can be found chasing my 2 small {but very energetic!} boys or playing with my new baby girl. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥
