Banana Muffins with Almonds

    40 minutes

    This is a good basic recipe for banana muffins. I have used wholemeal flour but you could use white flour if you prefer. Be sure to use very ripe bananas to ensure the muffins are sweet and tasty.

    These make terrific mini-muffins! Ideal for a teatime snack or as a lunchbox filler. The flavour of wholemeal and banana go together really well.  -  20 Sep 2015


    This recipe also works well with walnuts instead if almonds or sultanas added to the mixture. It is a good filling snack for afternoon tea.  -  11 May 2012
