Banana Berry Weet-Bix Muffins – Or Waste Not, Want Not Muffins
For the whole family
The best bit about these yummy muffins is that you can throw in whatever you have laying around the kitchen! They are easy to make and make an excellent afternoon treat.
Yeild : 10 muffins
You will need :
- 2 over ripe banans, smooshed with a fork
- 1 cup fresh or frozen berries
- about 2/3 to a cup of crushed Weet-Bix or cereal de jour
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1 cup wholemeal flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup skim milk (or whatever you have)
- 2 eggs, lightly whisked
- 50g butter, melted and cooled
Pre-heat over to 180C. Place paper cake case things into your muffin pan, or line your loaf tin.
You can sift your flour for a lighter muffin, but it’s not vital, so I throw my flours, baking powder and cinnamon into a large bowl.
Stir in the sugar and cereal and make a little well in the centre. Place your eggs, milk, banana and melted butter into a separate bowl and stir until all is well combined.
Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and toss in your berries. Give it a good stirring until just combined.
Spoon into your muffin cases and pop in the oven. Now, I have worked with many ovens in my time and the time variations depending on each oven can be massive. I would say give these 15 minutes and have a look. You want nicely golden brown and they’re ready when a skewer goes in the middle and comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack and you better try one while they’re still hot cos they is goooood.
