Banana and Muesli Muffins

Shake and Bake
About This Project

Okay so these are something I came up with literally as a heather way to start the day, I know we all LOVE them carb loaded full fat muffins from Mug & Bean, so these are just as tasty but slightly guilt free.


What goes in:

  • 2 cups Nutty Wheat flour (brown flour will also work)
  • 1 cups bran (the kind you would use for any bran muffin)
  • 1 cup muesli (whatever kind you like-i prefer a granola vibe)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 heaped Tbsp of baking powder
  • Couple Squeezes of honey
  • 2 cups Greek Yogurt
  • 1 cup Soy milk (don’t know why it just tastes gooood)
  • 2 1/2 Cups sticky brown sugar
  • 3 to 4 bananas depending on their size
  • 1 Tsp vanilla extract
  • A pinch of Salt

Let’s cook em:

-Okay so its a lot of ingredients but so simple to put together. First cream together your sugar, egg yolks, honey and bananas together till they are like a smooth paste vibe.

-After that in a separate bowl beat your egg whites they can be put aside when done as they will be thrown in at the end.

-To the creamed banana vibe you have just done- fold in your yogurt, soy milk & vanilla extract or pod, just make sure its the real stuff. Once your wet ingredients are all mixed together you can mix all your dry stuff together.

-So add the flour, bran, baking powder, salt & muesli and just give it a little mix, nothing hectic, then you can gradually add the dry into the wet mixing well before adding more. Okay so at this point its gonna seem a little thick and dry, that when our eggy whites come in.

-So folding is key, I know its a rash but you need the air so be patient and fold em. Once they are all incorporated, your ready to bake in a 180 degree oven for 30-40 mins. Do not over cook them, keep them moist and sticky. i tend to under cook slightly then they finish cooking in they tray while cooling down anyway.

-I top mine off with a slice of banana, but you can jazz it up with anything really: almonds a sprinkle of muesli or whatever. Also try adding other fruits instead of bananas, strawberries go just as well.

Happy Baking 🙂
