Ingredients

  • self-raising flour 250g
  • baking powder 1 tsp
  • ground almonds 25g
  • light brown muscovado sugar 75g
  • bananas 3 very ripe, 1 chopped
  • peanut, almond or other nut 100g
  • eggs 2
  • natural yogurt 100g
  • toasted flaked almonds 60g
  • golden icing sugar 125g

Method

  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with muffin cases. Tip the flour, baking powder, almonds and sugar into a large bowl. Mix the mashed banana with the nut butter, eggs and yogurt until the mixture is smooth, using a hand blender if you have one. Fold the wet mixture and the dry mixture together along with the chopped banana and half the flaked almonds – don’t worry if it looks a bit lumpy.

  • Step 2

    Divide the mixture between the cases and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the muffins have risen and are golden. Cool.

  • Step 3

    Mix the icing sugar with a little water to make it runny enough to drizzle, but thick enough not to run off the muffins. Spoon a little onto each muffin and add some flaked almonds.
