Banana, Orange and Walnut Muffins

Banana, Orange and Walnut Muffins

Ingredients
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 1 tbsp grated orange rind
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
Method:
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a muffin tray with cooking oil spray, or line with muffin cups.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour and baking powder. Add oats, salt and sugar, and lightly mix together. Make a well in the centre of the bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, blend the bananas until smooth using the blending leg. In a separate bowl combine banana, eggs, orange juice, rind, oil and honey. Pour the liquid mix into the dry ingredients, and mix lightly with a wooden spoon, until all ingredients are just combined.
  4. Place the walnuts in the mini-chopper and chop until desired results are achieved. Stir the walnuts through the muffin mixture.
  5. Fill each of the muffin cups ¾ full, and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown, and spring back when touched lightly.
