It is not unusual for us to have a banana lying about the kitchen, all brown and mottled and overripe. I don't eat bananas, and even A's love of bananas doesn't stretch to the squishy ones, so the more ways I have of using them up, the better.
There was also a spare bag of bircher muesli sitting around so a quick search for banana muesli muffins turned up this recipe. I halved it and tweaked as I only had butter, so here's my modified (but still tasty) recipe using ingredients I usually have in the house. This made 9 moderately sized muffins.
Muesli & Banana Muffins
Adapted from The Crazy Kitchen
90g Self Raising flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder
25g Caster sugar (I used golden)
1 egg, beaten
40g butter, melted
sprinkle of cinnamon
- Mix the flour, muesli, baking powder & caster sugar together.
- Mix the banana, eggs, butter & milk into the dry ingredients - do not over mix, it should be lumpy. Sprinkle cinnamon over the mix and stir in.
- Divide mixture between muffin cases.
- Bake in a preheated 180 C oven for 18-20 minutes.
