Easy Banana Muffins

These are delicious earthy wholesome breakfast muffins that only take a few minutes to throw together - you can even make the mix up the night before and just whack it in the oven in the morning.


I love that this recipe has no eggs or sugar, because sometimes we run out and I still want to bake, it's always handy to have something in your repertoire for cakemergencies
This recipe roughly based on Nigella Lawson's Banana Muffin Recipe from How to Cook. I've changed the recipe somewhat over time to make it really simple and possible for Small to bake on her own. (except for the oven bit)

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

30g - Butter (or Margarine or spread)
2 tbsp - Honey
½ tsp - Vanilla extract


2 - Super-ripe Bananas


150g - Flour (wholemeal works well)
1 tsp - Baking powder
1 tsp - Bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp - Cinnamon
Pinch of Salt

Directions:

Put your oven on at 180C

Measure out the Butter, Honey and Vanilla into a heatproof bowl and melt them together - We pop it in the microwave for 30/40 seconds.


Stick the bananas in the bowl and mush them up - you could use a masher or a fork, but if they are really ripe the back of a mixing spoon will do.

Add all the dry ingredients and stir.


Don't stir too much, just enough to have no dry lumps. At first it will look very dry, but it will come together.

I get between 9 and 12 cup-cake sized muffins, because I don't have a proper muffin tin, but this size suits us. The same mixture will work for proper sized muffins or mini-muffins, just adjust the cooking time.


Pop them in the oven for at 180C for 20 mins (or until golden brown on top)


These muffins taste lovely with a bit of Nutella while they are still warm and moist... If you leave them to cool they make a lovely addition to a packed lunch or picnic.
