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.
