Banana yoghurt muffins, perfect for healthy snacking

Bananas and Baking, one of my favourite combinations. We often have a couple of bananas hanging around earmarked for mummy to bake with as no-one like over-ripe bananas in our house. This weekend I decided to move away from our beloved flapjacks and try out some muffins. I’d seen a recipe somewhere that used yoghurt and banana with hardly any sugar or fat and that had got stuck in my mind, Of course I have no idea what the recipe was or where it was and it was a wheat containing recipeā€¦. so this is where my baking brain took me.

The result. A lovely moist, springy muffin that has little hidden gems of banana hidden inside. These are going to be come a regular in our house and lend themselves to all kinds of variations. Chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries mmmmm.

These muffins have 5g sugar which comes from the yoghurt and banana. The oats are wholegrain and the bananas give them a great fruit boost. Great for enjoying mid afternoon when you fancy cake or as a snack for the kids. Compare this to other toddler snacks you can buy and these are a much healthier option. These are also perfect for making with kids, I know my toddler will be having a go.

Healthy, Gluten Free, Wheat Free Banana, Yoghurt Muffins.

I’ll admit it, we bake with bananas a lot. They help reduce the amount of fat and sugar needed in baking and we often end up with a few over-ripe ones. Now no-one in our house eats over-ripe bananas, baking with them makes sure they aren’t wasted. If I don’t have time to bake then they get thrown in the freezer and I get them out for baking with another day.

Today was a baking day. At 34 weeks pregnant I’m not as up for running around the park as I was, Daddy was at work so myself and the toddler agreed to have a crafting and baking day. As my small girl gets older she gets more vocal, so when I suggested banana cake I was told “No mummy, I want baby cakes”. Ok, muffins it is.

So here are our banana, yoghurt muffins. The banana cuts down the need for too much margarine, the dates reduce the added sugar and the yoghurt keeps them moist, so all in all a healthy version of cake. Use gluten free or normal self raising flour if you fancy.
