Banana Muffins

Banana muffins are one of those baked goods I think we all have a recipe for, hidden somewhere amongst the recipe books. They're a great way to use up over-ripe bananas, make a delicious lunch box snack or mid-afternoon treat, and the smell that fills your kitchen while they're baking is like nothing else!

I thought I'd share with you my favourite healthy banana muffin recipe, adapted from the millions that are out there, to form the only one you'll ever need…

Banana Muffins

½ C rolled oats
1 ¾ C wholemeal SR flour
½ tsp bicarb soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 ripe bananas, mashed
½ C plain yoghurt
¼ C macadamia oil
¼ C honey
2 eggs
To top:
12 extra banana slices
1 Tbsp brown sugar (optional)
  1.  Preheat oven to 180C fan forced.
  2. Whisk eggs, oil, yoghurt, honey and vanilla in a medium bowl. Stir in banana.
  3. In a separate bowl combine flour, oats, bicarb soda and cinnamon.
  4. Add dry mix to wet mix and stir until just combined.
  5. Pour into muffin tin lines with 12 muffin cases. Top each with 1 slice banana and a sprinkle of brown sugar (if using).
  6. Bake for ~20 minutes or until golden brown and a skewer comes out clean. 

Makes 12
