Super seedy muffins
This is another snack I made for my kids and also myself... who doesn't love a muffin?! These are also lower in sugar and saturated fat than traditional banana muffins or cake, and contain more healthy omega-3s, fibre and zinc. If you're interested in calories and macros, they're approx 180kcals per muffin, 4g protein, 7g fat and 25g carbs.
Ingredients (makes 12):
200g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
Half tsp bicarb of soda
1-2 tsp of cinnamon
3 ripe bananas
50g light brown sugar
50 ml maple syrup
50ml light olive oil
1-2 tsp vanilla extract
75g mixed seeds (and extra for topping) - I have a mixed bag of sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, linseed etc)
Preheat oven to 200 / 180 fan, and put 12 paper cases into a muffin tin
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, bicarb of soda and cinnamon.
In another bowl, mash the bananas, sugar and maple syrup together, and then add the oil and vanilla extract.
Add the banana mixture to the flour and combine together, and then add the seeds mixing together
Spoon out the mixture evenly between the muffin cases. Sprinkle over any extra seeds and bake for approximately 20 mins until risen and golden.
Leave to cool for 10 mins before removing from the tin and then allow to cool completely before storing.
Either freeze or store in an airtight container.
