Banana & Blueberry Muffins

There are some days when i wake up in the morning and i crave something specific like blueberry muffins and i have to make them. The banana mixed with blueberry gives them a twisted flavour and the oat added just makes you feel less guilty about the indulgence.


  • 50g oats
  • 300g self raising flour
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
  • 60g sugar
  • 2 Bananas
  • 284ml of buttermilk
  • 5 tbsp oil
  • 2 egg whites
  • 100g blueberries


  • Heat the oven to 180 °C (fan assisted) / gas mark 5 and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper muffin cases.
  • Tip the bicarbonate of soda and flour into a large bowl. Hold back one tablespoon of the sugar, then mix the rest with the flour and the 50 grams of Oats.
  • Make a hole in the centre of the mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, mash the bananas until nearly smooth.
  • Stir the oil, buttermilk and egg whites in to the mashed banana until evenly mixed.
  • Pour the liquid mixture into the hole and stir quickly and sparingly with a wooden spoon. The mix will look lumpy and may have the odd speck of flour still visible, but don’t over-mix.
  • Tip in the blueberries and give it just one more stir.
  • Divide the mix between the muffin cases – they will be quite full – then sprinkle the tops with the final tablespoon of the Oats and the rest of the sugar.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until risen and golden brown.
  • Cool for 5 minutes in the tray before lifting out on to a rack to cool completely.
