Recipe: Karen’s Banana & Nut Muffins

Delicious and wholesome and also reasonably healthy. These are the tastiest muffins ever! Recipe courtesy of my girlfriend. Makes 12.



2/3 cup plain flour
1/3 cup almond meal
1 tsp baking powder
2/3 tsp bicarb of soda
pinch salt
2/3 tsp cinnamon
2 large ripe bananas
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup chopped nuts (pecans/walnuts)


Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius (fan-forced).

Beat butter, sugar, egg & vanilla essence in a bowl until smooth and creamy. Continue mixing and add mashed bananas followed by the flour, bicarb of soda, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Stir in nuts.

Put into a greased & floured muffin tray and cook for 14-15 minutes. Serve with a knob of butter & dusted with icing sugar. Mmmmmmm!
