Muffins are great fun both to eat and to make – they’re not too difficult, so they make a good introduction to baking for children, and their small size means that they are easily eaten by even the smallest in the family. With some thought, you can make some healthy and interesting muffins that can go to school or work in a lunch box.
275 g self-raising flour
50 g oats
1 tsp baking powder
100 g sultanas – if you are just starting out, try our small 500 g bag
100 g runny honey
2 bananas, mashed
100 g nut butter – cashew nut butter works really well
50 g butter, melted
200 ml milk – try soya if you are lactose-intolerant
Preheat the oven to 190C/gas 5 and line a muffin tray with 12 paper muffin cases.
Mix the flour, oats, baking powder and sultanas in a large bowl and set aside.
In another bowl, beat the eggs, and then gently beat in the honey, mashed bananas, peanut butter, melted butter and milk. You’ll end up with a gloopy liquid.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, tip in the wet ingredients and quickly combine. Don’t over-mix.
Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Cool on a cooling rack.
Great for breakfast in a hurry or as an addition to your sandwich box.
