Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp milk

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 2 drops vanilla essence

  • 2 tbsp honey, or sugar

  • 150g wholemeal self-raising flour

  • 2 tbsp butter

  • 1 handful raisins, or chopped dried apricots, optional

  • 2 banana

Method

  1. Melt the milk, butter and honey/sugar in pot over a gentle heat. Add bananas and mash.
  2. Pour wet mixture into bowl with flour and baking powder. Mix gently. If it is too dry add more milk.
  3. Scoop in muffin cases (will make 5-6 depending on size of bananas)
  4. Cook at Gas Mark 5 for 20 mins or so. The muffins are ready when they are golden brown on top. They will seem quite squidgy but will firm up when they cool.

Handy Hint

I can have these in the oven in about 3 minutes and the recipe is a lifesaver, as no egg is required. Use sugar instead of honey it there are any under 1's then all the family can enjoy them. Great mid morning snack for all!

    fab little recipe :) Great use for a couple of overripe bananas :) We added 1/2 cup of raisins and 1/2 cup of chopped strawberries and used white SR flour and the end result was delicious (and I have fussy kids!!)

    This recipe is brilliant! I will definetley use it again!! I made it as cupcakes and added bluberries to mine and they were yummy!!

    Great muffins!! I bet the person who hated them overmixed the batter. I sifted in the dry ingredients and then gently stirred until 95% of the flour was absorbed then spooned into muffin tins. 17 mins later we all anxiously waited for them to cool down enough to devour them. Definitely a keeper!! Funnily enough I tried the recipe because I didn't have any eggs, but from now on even when I do I will be making these - easy, nutritious and oh so tasty! All three teenagers loved them and asked for more!

    I tried these due to the positive comments. They are awful. Low sugar, low fat, no egg = texture similar to play dough. Luckily my daughter is not a fussy critic when it comes to cakes/muffins etc and they can still go in her lunchbox.

    So easy to make! Will be making these regularly with my kids :)

    Was very dubious these were going to work, but they did and they were very tasty! We used white SR flour and measured out 250ml in a jug which seemed to work. Also added raisins, deffo be doing these again.

    I can't get wholemeal self raising flour so I used plain + 1 extra tspn baking powder + 1/2 tspn salt and it worked perfectly. Thanks for a great recipe, planning to make a bigger batch next time.

    Really tasty. Very quick to make. Will be making them again soon.

    Made these today - very easy and tasty, gone down well with the whole family. Took me more like 10 mins to get them in the oven, largely spent searching for honey then deciding to use sugar rather than chisel the last inch of honey out the jar. I'll try honey next time!
