We were out of our supply of snacks so this morning I whipped up these super simple banana muffins. When I say this morning it was more like crack of dawn as Arjun was awake at 5.30am this morning - so what better activity on a cold, dark morning than to do some baking together. Well, I mainly did the mixing while Arjun watched with his lions and books but he was still involved :)
When we came home from soccer lovely fresh muffins were waiting for us.... 'mmmm yummy' was Arjun's comment!
You can easily adapt this recipe to suit your tastes. I made this completely sugar-free using only the banana for a natural sweetness but you could add chopped dates, raisins or even 1-2 tablespoons of low GI sugar if you are working on cutting your sugar down. You could also add sliced or finely chopped almonds for an extra protein boost.
Super Simple Banana Muffins:
A one bowl wonder which has warm muffins in just under 20 minutes and a great way to use up old banana's - it does not get much better than that!
3-4 bananas (ripe is good can use ones from freezer)
50g of butter, melted
1 egg (mixed with a folk)
1½ cups of whole-meal flour
1sp baking powder
1tsp baking soda
- Preheat oven to 180°C and grease 12-hole muffin tin (or mini-muffin tin)
- Mix the egg with a folk in a large bowl
- Add everything else and mix together
- Bake for approximately 20mins - makes 12 large muffins.
