  • wholemeal flour 125g, sifted
  • plain flour 125g, sifted
  • baking powder 2 tsp
  • molasses sugar or dark sugar 100g
  • pumpkin seeds a handful, plus a few extra for the tops
  • sultanas or raisins a handful
  • oil 100ml (use any oil without much flavour)
  • bananas 4, very ripe and mashed (or 350ml thick fruit purée)
  • eggs 2, lightly beaten
  • milk 2 tbsp


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180c/fan 160c/gas 4. Line 6 holes of an oiled non-stick muffin tin with squares of greaseproof paper (cut a square and push it in so it comes up the sides to the top of the tin). Mix the flours, baking powder, sugar, seeds and sultanas in a bowl, then add the oil, banana, eggs and milk. Fold quickly with a large metal spoon and don’t worry if the mix is still lumpy – mixing for too long makes muffins tough.

  • Step 2

    Divide the mixture between muffin tins. Fill them to the top, sprinkle on a few extra seeds and bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are cooked through. Cool briefly, then put on a wire rack.
