Instead of using sugar, we sweeten these fruity muffins with applesauce and puréed banana. They pop with fresh berry flavour in every bite, with a subtle sweetness.

Ingredients

Banana(s)

1 medium, chopped

Apple sauce

120 g

Vegetable Oil

2 tablespoons

Egg, whole, raw

2 large, raw

Self Raising Wholemeal Flour

250 g

Blueberries

225 g

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan 170°C, gas mark 5. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with 8 muffin cases.
  2. Put the banana and apple sauce into a mini food processor and blitz until completely smooth. Add the oil and eggs and pulse until well combined.
  3. Add the flour to a large mixing bowl and mix in the banana mixture. Fold in the blueberries. Divide the mixture between the muffin cases.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until well risen and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, then transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool.

Notes

Since they lack sugar, which caramelises and aids in browning baked goods, these muffins will be lighter in colour than you might expect. They freeze well; just reheat in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds to thaw.
