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.
