I’m more conscious than ever that I need to use up everything in the kitchen and limit waste. One of my favourite recipes for making the most of bananas that are past their best is my Oaty Banana Muffin Recipe.
These handy muffins are perfect for breakfast on the go, or as a simple way to add some calcium, vitamin D and fibre to your breakfast. They are really easy to make as you only need one bowl and you can put all the ingredients in together. Give them a try. They have natural sweetness from the banana and you can taste the oaty goodness.
Ingredients for Oaty Banana Muffin Recipe
To make 12 muffins you will need:
- 75g butter
- 50g caster sugar
- 60g Oats (Ready Brek Original Smooth or Plain Rolled Oats)
- 160g plain flour
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
- 1 large egg
- 3 bananas (mashed)
How To Make Oaty Banana Muffins
First turn the oven on and preheat to 180°C (160°C fan) or equivalent. Then, line your muffin tray with paper muffin cases. This banana muffin recipe makes 12 muffins.
I find this recipe is fairly forgiving, so I simply measure all the ingredients into one bowl and then mix. Measure the butter, sugar, oats, flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into one bowl. Then add the egg and 3 mashed bananas.
Mix together until all the ingredients have combined and you have a thick mixture. I mix the ingredients in a free-standing mixer for 1½ minutes.
Put the mixture into your muffin cases, then pop the muffin tray in the centre of the oven for 30-35 minutes, until they have risen, are golden in colour and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let the muffins cool on a cooling rack.
You can enjoy your Oaty Banana Muffins with sliced bananas or blueberries for breakfast, or even eat them as a snack. If you’re feeling particularly indulgent they are delicious warm, sliced in half and spread with orange marmalade.
Give them a go.
