Banana & Fruit Muffins

It would seem I have gained a few pounds recently…. So, for the next month or so  I’m going to at least try to eat more fruit and veg and less sugary treats.

Knowing I will miss the sweet treats most I’m starting with a batch of muffins. Okay, so not exactly healthy, but better than another doughnut passing my lips to get to my hips I’m sure!

Banana & Fruit Muffins

225g Wholemeal Flour

2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda

2 tsp Baking Powder

2 tsp Ground Cinnamon

360g Mixed Chopped Dried Fruit

40g Pecan or Cashew Nuts

2 tbsp Clear Honey

75ml Olive Oil

75ml Apple Juice

4 Ripe Bananas Mashed

2 Apples Peeled, Cored & Grated

2 Medium Eggs

1. Preheat the oven to 160°C/140C fan/gas 3. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper muffin cases (depending on size, you may be able to make one or two extra muffins from the mixture).

2. Sift the rice flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and cinnamon into a large bowl. Stir in the sultanas, apricots, dates and pecan nuts.

3. In a separate bowl, mix the honey, sunflower oil, apple juice, mashed banana, grated apple and eggs together. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture. Stir gently with wooden spoon to combine.

4. Divide the batter equally between the 12 muffin cases and bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or cold.
