Muffin top....

Skinny Banana Muffins....(Makes 12)

310g Self raising flour
a pinch of bicarbonate of soda
a pinch of salt
170g demerara sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
50ml sunflower oil
150ml skimmed milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 mashed bananas

My other half declared earlier "I think the bananas might be about to turn". About to? I think they are doing circles. I would normally make banana and chocolate crumble cake or banana loaf with them but the enormously chubby love handles say I've made them once too often.

So I decided to go for a low fat version. With my rough calculations I think these are about 180 cals each...trouble is, when I took them out of the oven they smelt so amazingly good, I ate two!

Sieve all the dry ingredients into a bowl. Add the vanilla and give it a good mix.

In another bowl mix the egg, milk and oil and mix into a rough batter (this is more of a fold actually with a metal spoon.)

Use spray oil on a muffin tray and put a heaped spoon of the mix in each hole.

Bake for twenty five minutes....then try and stop yourself eating them! (I've had to pop mine in the freezer!)

PS I've lost 11lbs in two weeks, so it's working!


  1. 11lbs in two weeks!!! I hate you! :) Seriously though, well done you, that is an amazing amount. These look delish, I shall give this a whirl. All the cold weather has made it so hard to diet - I have no excuses for this week though :( Love Lucie x

  2. It is a great world where eating muffins can make you skinnier! Especially these yummy ones.

  3. I love the idea of losing weight while eating muffins! I have been using some bananas up in smoothies and must have put on about 3lbs - my mistake!
