Method

  1. ​Preheat oven to 170 C.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, mash banana, add pumpkin or fruit and combine. Mix in eggs, vanilla and then milk.
  4. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients until completely mixed.
  5. Spoon into greased muffin tins.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Note: Pumpkin can be replaced with mashed carrot, grated courgette, pear or apple puree. If you do choose to use fruit, we recommend omitting the spices other than cinnamon.These muffins are rather dense (and filling) and do not rise. You’ll know they’re cooked when the tops turn golden brown.
