Recipes: Banana Maple Muffins

G1 tried my Banana Date Muffins and he really liked them – except for the dates which he kept picking out – so this one’s for him…

Personally, I prefer the Banana Date Muffins. These muffins are little more cake-like in consistency and a lot of them collapsed in the oven and ran over the sides so I didn’t have many that were fit for photo taking. Nevertheless, they agreed with G1, so I guess this one’s a keeper. Here’s the recipe…


  • 250g plain flour
  • 100g rye flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarb soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 60ml maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup mashed banana (about 2 medium bananas)
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 250ml buttermilk
  • 80ml olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 190C.
  • Combine dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
  • Stir in maple syrup and bananas, then eggs, buttermilk and oil.
  • Spoon mixture into muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes.
