BANANA MUFFINS WITH BLUEBERRIES


RECIPE BY

JULIE VAN DEN DRIESSCHEN

It won’t surprise you to discover that I prefer to begin my day with something sweet. I don’t usually feel guilty about the extra calories. But if there’s an alternative that doesn’t come at the cost of the taste, I am all ears!
I know these no-guilt banana muffins made with Zùsto will satisfy you. One muffin contains 284 kcal instead of an average of 500 kcal for the classic variant.
I have discovered a new friend in Zùsto and I’m using it to take my baking to new places!

Ingredients
Makes 9 muffins

  • 250 g self-raising flour
  • 150 g Zùsto
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 150 g mashed banana (about 2 small bananas)
  • 70 ml milk

Method

  1. Put the flour, Zùsto, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a mixing bowl.
  2. Mix the egg, mashed banana, milk and sunflower oil in a different bowl until it becomes a smooth, even mixture.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones, mixing for a little while with a spatula or wooden spoon. (Tip: The more you mix, the less crumbly your muffins will be. Don’t overmix!)
  4. Add the blueberries last.
  5. Put the mixture in paper muffin cups and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes in an oven preheated to 180°C (hot-air oven).

    Tip: Delicious when they’re still warm!
