Easy-peasy banana muffins

Two minutes – and just five ingredients – is all you need to put these delicious bites together! I created these for a close relative that never has the time to make something healthy and delicious for coffee breaks at work. It’s so easy to reach for the biscuit tin each time – especially when energy levels are low – but keeping these muffins handy will make you feel so much more satisfied. Most importantly, they taste amazing.


I use cranberries in this recipe, but feel free to use whatever berries, nuts or seeds you like. Dark chocolate chips will also work perfectly!


  • 140g oats (1.5 cups)
  • 3 ripe medium-sized bananas
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey if non-vegan)
  • 3 tablespoons of smooth, runny peanut butter
  • 1 rounded teaspoon baking powder
  • Optional: 50g dried cranberries


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius (170 degrees if using a fan-oven). Grease your muffin tin with some coconut oil or use a silicone mould.
  • Mash the bananas in a large bowl with a fork until runny. Add in the remainder of the ingredients and mix well.
  • Place a rounded tablespoon of the muffin mixture into each of the moulds – you should get about 8 muffins from the recipe. Use the back of a spoon to ensure the mixture reaches the bottom of the moulds and to ensure the top is smooth.


  • Bake in the centre of the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool before storing in an airtight container.
