Skinny Banana Nut Muffins

By Mariella Forte | 19 Jul 2015 | RECIPES

We’re mourning the end of our Skinny Limited Edition Banoffee Pearls and we hope you enjoyed them too! All is not lost – here is a super simple banana nut muffin recipe to sooth your banana withdrawal. Baking with bananas is perfect when dieting as they’re a great fat and sugar substitute (think standard white sugar and butter). They’re a brilliant binding agent too – you could even try making a vegan version subbing the eggs for chia seed gloop (you’ll know what I’m referring too if you’ve tried chia) and using a non dairy milk alternative. ?

FOR THE MUFFINS – Serves 9 (148 calories | 2g fat (0.4g sat fat)| 14g sugar each)

You will need:

  • 200g plain flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder (15g)
  • 360g banana
  • 60ml skimmed milk
  • 100g egg (2 medium)
  • 20ml canola oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 80g light brown sugar
  • 30g chopped walnuts
  • banana chips (topping)


STEP 1: Sieve the flour with the baking powder.

STEP 2: Carefully fold in all other ingredients.

STEP 3: Fill standard muffin cases to the top, topping each with a walnut piece and banana chip.

STEP 4: Bake for 25 minutes on 180°c until golden.

P.S. Top tip: Pipe a blob of caramel onto the top of your muffins for a sticky banoffee effect!
