A few weeks ago, UK charity Send a Cow reached out for me to help promote their Sweet Swap challenge. During the month of May, they are asking people to give up the sweet things they love for anything from one week to the whole month, and to donate the money they save or raise in sponsorship to Send a Cow.
There has been a lot of talk about sugar in the news lately, so I was glad to get involved to highlight another side of the sugar story: the plight of smallholder sugar cane farmers in Africa trapped into a life of extreme poverty.
My kids are big fans of muffins so this seems to be an ideal recipe to get them involved and speak about this fantastic cause.
These muffins are sweetened with bananas, sultanas and dates. They are light and delicious.
With no added sugar and little oil, they make a healthy breakfast or snack choice for the whole family. Needless to say, the two batches we made disappeared in no time.
