Banana & Walnut Breakfast Muffins

Banana and walnut breakfast muffins – Delicious and easy to make, with no refined sugar or added fat.
Active Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 6 muffins


  • 60 g plain flour
  • 35 g wheatgerm - or crushed bran flakes if you don't have any wheatgerm
  • 100 g oats
  • 50 g clear honey
  • ½ tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 banana
  • 1 large egg
  • 125 ml milk - I use skimmed but any is fine
  • 50 g walnuts
  • 6 muffin cases


  • Pre heat the oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan.
  • Place the muffin cases into the holes of a muffin tin.
  • In a small bowl, peel and mash the banana.
  • Sift the plain flour (60g), baking powder (½ tbsp) and salt (½ tsp) into a large bowl.
  • Add the wheatgerm (35g) and oats (100g) and given them a quick stir so they're all mixed up.
  • Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add the remaining ingredients (50g clear honey, 1 large egg, 125ml milk, 50g walnuts and mashed banana) and stir until thoroughly combined.
  • Scoop the mixture into the prepared muffin cases, distributing it as evenly as possible.
  • If you have any spare oats then sprinkle them on top (not really necessary, it just looks nice!).
  • Place in the oven and cook for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes insert a skewer. If the skewer comes out clean then the muffins are cooked, if not, pop it back in the oven for a couple more minutes.
  • Once cooked place onto a wire rack to cool.
