This is a recipe I put together today. Based on some I found online. On reflection I'd probably increase the banana or maybe tone back the bicarb and sub some more baking powder; I find the saltiness from bicarb a little overpowering. I also think a touch of acidity might help the flavour and the raising agent and perhaps a touch of vanilla wouldn't go amiss, maybe some dried fruit. That said, my son and my husband were positive about them so it's definitely a starting point, although not as truly fantastic as the date loaf recipe.
I realised part way through that I'd only got 9 cake cases left. D'oh! I don't have any fancy silicone cupcake tins but I tried greasing my bog standard steel ones and it worked a treat.
No Added Sugar Banana Mini Muffins (makes approx 16)
3 Ripe Bananas - note, if you have some ripe bananas but don't feel like cooking, you can peel and freeze them and use them next time you're in the mood.
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
175g Wholemeal Plain Flour
80g Melted Unsalted Butter
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
Put the bananas, butter and egg into a food processor and puree. Pour into a bowl. Add the dry ingredients and mix quickly; don't overmix, apparently that's the secret with muffins. Line a cupcake tin with cases or butter with extra melted unsalted butter. Put a generous dsp into each case. Bake for around 14-16 mins.
