Going Bananas

I am a huge ginormous fan of the lovely Gee Gee who has a fantastic foodie blog and her very own Facebook page called Uplifting Food One of her recipes has been taunting me for a while now and it's her Banana Muffin creation. It works out at only 2.5 WW points per muffin, so I can happily make and eat these beauties.

This morning, I got up and did a skills test online for a temporary contract I'm being put forward for and saw The Hubs off to work. The fruit basket caught my eye and I decided to bake the muffins as there was a money-sized bunch of bananas just lying there doing nothing apart from being sliced into my breakfast cereal.

The recipe is dead simple. Preheat your oven to Gas 5/160F fan/ 190 normal/375 and get out your 12-hole muffin tin. Either grease & flour it, or use muffin cases (I use the M&S ones) and get your ingredients together

Mash the bananas, add the sugar, a beaten egg and melt your butter (the 1/3 cup is just over 75g).

Sieve your flour, salt, baking soda & bicarb into a large bowl & then mix in all your wet ingredients, taking care not to over beat.

Use an icecream scoop to measure out the portions - you actually do get 12 out of this mix, and bake for 20 minutes.

The smell will paralyse you - it's just intoxicating, wafting all that banana yummy goodness throughout the house. And to accompany it, I made a very skinny Hazelnut Mocha with skimmed milk, Green & Blacks cocoa powder, Monin Sugar Free Hazelnut Syrup (a b*stard to source here) and some of my Senseo coffee. Time to eat, drink and be merry!

  1. Delira that you liked them missus. :D The smell is gorgeous, isn't it?
    Might take one or two out of the freezer when I go home later to nibble on.
