 Recipe by Grace Stevens

Mini Banana Muffins

2 overripe bananas
125 ml brown sugar
60ml oil
5 ml vanilla extract
1 eggs
125 flour
60ml oats
60ml desiccated coconut
5ml cinnamon
2,5ml baking powder
2,5ml bicarbonate of soda
Chopped walnuts (optional)
 
Preheat the oven to 180º C and either grease a 12 hole muffin tin or place muffin liners into the tin. In a large bowl, mash bananas and sugar until no large pieces of banana are left. Add eggs, oil and vanilla paste and mix well. Add flour, coconut, oats, cinnamon, baking powder and bicarb to the banana mixture. Mix well, you can add chopped walnuts or pecan nuts at this stage if you wish. Fill muffin tins ¾ full. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. I touch the top of the muffin gently with my finger, if it springs back quickly, it’s baked, if it doesn’t, leave the muffins for a bit longer. Tip the hot muffins in the tin to prevent soggy bottoms while they cool. Store in an airtight container till you pop them into lunch boxes or serve with cheese for breakfast.

Mini Bran Muffins

250 ml milk (instead of banans)
125 ml brown sugar
60ml oil
5 ml vanilla extract
1 eggs
125 flour
60ml bran (instead of oats)
60ml desiccated coconut
5ml cinnamon
2,5ml baking powder
2,5ml bicarbonate of soda
Chopped walnuts or raisins (optional)
 
Preheat the oven to 180º C and either grease a 12 hole muffin tin or place muffin liners into the tin. In a large bowl, sift flour, cinnamon, baking powder and bicarb.Add bran and coconut. Beat together milk, eggs, oil and vanilla paste and add to dry ingredients. Mix well, you can add chopped walnuts, pecan nuts or raisins at this stage if you wish. Fill muffin tins ¾ full. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. I touch the top of the muffin gently with my finger, if it springs back quickly, it’s baked, if it doesn’t, leave the muffins for a bit longer. Tip the hot muffins in the tin to prevent soggy bottoms while they cool. Store in an airtight container till you pop them into lunch boxes or serve with cheese for breakfast.

Mini Blueberry Muffins

To either the bran or the banana muffins, add 125ml blueberries. if you use frozen berries, add 5 minutes to your baking time. To finish: Thread three muffins onto a kebab stick and place in lunch box. Pack in some cheese and fruit to compliment.
