These banana sweet potato cakes are great healthy cakes for kids! They are nutritious, taste great, and because they are so small they are perfect for snacks and lunchboxes.

These cute little cakes get their flavour from banana and sweet potato. The banana, sweet potato and butter all help to make these tasty toddler cakes deliciously soft.

This recipe makes about 20 mini cakes. You can store them in the fridge for up to three days, or freeze them and pull them out as you need them. 


  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup chopped sweet potato
  • 50g butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup self raising flour


Boil or steam sweet potato until tender.

Preheat oven to 180 C (355 F) and line a baking tray with baking paper.

In a large bowl, mash banana, sweet potato and softened butter together until well mashed and combined.

Whisk the egg in a small bowl or cup to break up the yolk, then add it to the mixing bowl and mix it through.

Add flour and mix until well combined.

Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking tray, evenly spaced.

Bake for 14-15 minutes, until firm.

Makes about 20.

Store in the fridge for up to 3 days, or freeze in a freezer-safe container.


  • Bananas are a fantastic ingredient in toddler cooking, as they are a healthy way of sweetening any recipe without adding refined sugar. Mashed banana can also be used in place of butter or oil to keep cakes and muffins moist.
