Banana Muffins with mini M&M

PrintFriendly

You look hungry . . .

so I made you these :)

Healthy banana muffins packed with mini m&ms.

Why?

Because I had yet another manky over ripe banana (or 2) to use and well . . . what can I say,

I like you :)

So sit down, grab a cup of coffee (or tea) and have a muffin.

You deserve it.

Banana & Mini M&M Muffins

Ingredients -
Slightly adapted from this recipe from Eat Live Run
Makes approx 12

2 medium (seriously over ripe) bananas, mashed
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 Tbsp plain greek yoghurt (I used Chobani plain 0%)
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt flakes
1 1/2 cup plain flour
2 Tbsp mini m&ms

Method -

Preheat oven to 175’C (350’F)

Line a cupcake tray with paper cases and set aside.

In a medium bowl, peel and mash your manky bananas.

Realise you mashed them in a small bowl and now transfer to a medium size bowl instead, sorry. Don’t be like me :/

Add egg,

vanilla,

yoghurt,

then mix until well combined.

Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt over banana batter,

and stir until just combined.

Add mini m&ms and carefully stir to combine but do not over mix.

Spoon batter into lined cupcake tray and bake for approx 12-15 mins,

until toothpick has just a few moist crumbs attached when inserted into the middle.

Allow to cool if you have the patience that I am seriously lacking

or proceed with caution as they are VERY (although delicious) hot!

uh, yep . . . soooo good!
