I’ve been searching for something relatively healthy to have in stock for the kids’ breakfasts for a while. They tend to flit between toast, yoghurts, fruit, smoothies and cereal and I just felt like they needed a bit of a mix up because everything got a bit samey, especially on days when our food shop is due and there is next to sod all in the house. These are great to whip up and they use ingredients we all tend to have in the cupboards anyway with no wanky extras that you can’t buy from anywhere except a health food shop or a sacred, ancient jungle outback that takes 4 weeks of trekking to find. I present my (semi) healthy honey + banana breakfast muffins!
2tbsp veg oil
100g self-raising flour
50g brown sugar
2 tbsp honey
1 heaped tsp of baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
1: peel 2 and a half bananas and mashing into a large mixing bowl.
2: add the milk, oil, honey, sugar, vanilla and oats to the bowl and mix together.
3: add the baking powder and then add the flour slowly, folding it in as you go.
4: pour the mixture into muffin cases and cut the leftover banana in to thing slices and place on top of the mixture.
5: cook in the oven at 150 degrees Celsius for approx 25 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
tip: top with a drizzle of honey or caramel sauce if you’re feeling the sugar rush.
