A healthy choice for when those sugar cravings kick in!


300g (3 cups) self raising flour

1 tsp bicarb of sofa

100g (2/3 cup) brown sugar

50g (3/4 cup) porridge oats, plus 1 tbsp for topping

2 ripe bananas

284ml milk

1 tbsp vinegar

5 tbsp olive oil

2 egg whites

150g (1 cup) blueberries


§ Pre heat the oven to 160C/320F and line a 12-hole muffin tin.

§ Tip the flour and soda into a bowl and mix in the sugar, holding back 50g (1/3 cup)

§ Mix 50g (1/3 cup) of the oats into the flour bowl, and make a well in the centre

§ In a separate bowl, mash the bananas until nearly smooth.

§ Mix the milk, vinegar, oil and egg whites into the mashed banana until evenly combined.

§ Pour the liquid mixture into the well and stir quickly and briefly (all the flour does not need to be incorporated)

§ Add the blueberries and give it one more stir.

§ Divide the mix between the muffin cases — they will be quite full

§ Then sprinkle the tops with the remaining oats and the rest of the sugar.

§ Bake for 18–20 mins until risen and dark golden.

§ Leave to cool and enjoy
