  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 100g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 2 large or 3 small bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 125ml buttermilk
  • 75g melted butter
  • 3 tbsp oats


  • STEP 1

    Line a 12-hole muffin tin and heat the oven to 190c/fan 170c/gas 5. Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl. Mix the bananas, eggs, buttermilk and butter, then add to the dry mix with a pinch of salt. Fold it together lightly and quickly. Don’t worry if the mixture looks lumpy – keep going until it is smooth and your muffins will be tough. Spoon into the muffin cases and sprinkle on oats.
