Banana & Blueberry Yogurt Muffins

Just a quick post at the moment – I’ve got five exams coming up in the next two weeks and so study is taking priority! Whipped up a quick batch of muffins for brain food! (Little bit of procrastibaking too…)

Original recipe from taste.com.au but modified to suit my needs!

Banana & Blueberry Yogurt Muffins

Makes 12 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups wholemeal self raising flour
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup Chobani 2% Greek Yogurt (or other low fat alternative)
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana (about 2 medium bananas)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees (170 if fan forced oven). Grease a 12 tray muffin pan (or use silicon muffin cases).
  2. Stir together the flour and chia seeds.
  3. Whisk together the banana, egg, oil and honey (Hayley’s Handy Hint: put the oil in first and use the same measuring cup for the honey – the thin layer of oil prevents the honey from sticking to the cup!).
  4. Combine the flour and liquid mixture and stir until just combined.
  5. Fold through the blueberries.
  6. Spoon mixture into muffin tray and bake for 12 – 15 minutes (until golden brown and skewer comes out clean).
  7. Transfer whole muffin tray to oven rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from tray and place on oven rack to cool further.

Easy, peasy! Took me about 25 minutes total to make (including clean up time which I did while they were baking). You can freeze them and then take them as an on the go snack to work/school/uni. I like my muffins warm so I generally heat them up in the microwave for 10 seconds but they can be enjoyed defrosted too!

Enjoy! xo

P.S – made the Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal for my parents this morning (studying down in my hometown of Mandurah for a few days) and it received the thumbs up from my Dad (who’s a white bread and meat kind of man hehe). The real test will be the clean vegetable quiche I’m making for dinner tonight – recipe and verdict will be up later tonight!
