Banana Muffin Recipe

You will need: 1x 12 hole muffin tin, x2 mixing bowls, an electric whisk, sieve, potato masher and a wire rack for cooling. 


  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4  tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons runny honey
  • 100g light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •  150g plain yoghurt

  • 2 large free range eggs
  • 2 large, very ripe bananas
  • 50g chopped walnuts
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 30g raisins

Makes 12 Standard Banana Muffins


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6 and line the muffin tin with the paper cases.
  2. Chop the butter into small chunks and gently melt either in the microwave or on the hob, taking care not to burn.
  3. In a mixing bowl beat the sugar, eggs, melted butter, vanilla extract, honey and yoghurt together until smooth.  In a separate bowl sieve and mix the dry ingredients together – flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and salt.  Fold into the wet mixture and beat until smooth.
  4. Peal and mash the bananas and add along with the orange zest, chopped walnuts and raisins to the muffin batter.  Stir until thoroughly incorporated. 
  5. Divide the mixture between the muffin cases and bake for 20mins until golden, or until the sponge springs back when touched.
  6. Leave to cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool. 

Baking Tip:  These banana muffins are even more delicious when served fresh out of the oven! To make them a bit more virtuous, try using wholemeal flour instead and enjoy as a wholesome breakfast on the go.
