  • Rolled Oats
    • Rolled oats are best, they give the Muffins a lovely Wholesome texture.

  • Bicarbonate Soda
  • Baking Powder
  • Cinnamon
    • I used powdered Cinnamon, it gives a lovely warm spiced flavour to the muffins.

  • Olive Oil
    • Substitute with Vegetable oil if that’s all you have
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Mashed Bananas
  • Cranberries
    • Or any small berry of your choosing

Instructions

  • In a separate bowl beat the egg then mix in the milk, oil, and vanilla. Stir in the mashed bananas.
  • Now add the Banana mix to the flour mix, stir with a wooden spoon until completely combined
  • Add 2 Handfuls of Chopped Cranberries, stir in.
  • Line a 12 cup muffin tray with muffin cases. Fill each muffin case to the top with the batter.
