I can not throw out an old banana. Sometimes I freeze them, other times I keep them in the fridge and try and find the time to make use of them. These three bananas had been in the fridge waiting for me to find a new life for them. Even though the bananas might look brown and squashy they are perfect for inside the muffin mix. They are sweeter in this very ripe state and blend well. These are wonderful creations that are perfect for children’s lunch boxes or something to eat mid morning.

Muffins are very simple to make which is usually a big plus with all of us being so busy these days.

Here is the Recipe.


125 gm of unsalted butter

3 eggs

3 bananas (very ripe)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup of maple syrup

2 cups of self raising flour

1/2 cup of diced dried prunes


Place butter and bananas in a mixing bowl and mix. Add brown sugar and maple syrup, mix again.

Add self raising flour and diced dried prunes. Mix just until combined. Place into a muffin tin. I use paper liners to make sure the muffins come out. Place in an 170 degrees oven for twenty five to thirty minutes or until golden brown and spring back when touched.

I hope you enjoy them.
