I think overripe banana’s are a Zero-Waster dream as the possibilities are endless from smoothies, to pancakes to muffins. Don’t ever let your bananas go to waste 🙂

Now that you have looked over at your fruit bowl and seen a couple browning banana skins…. lets get you whipping up these banana bread muffins.

What you’ll need:

4                                  medium bananas, overripe

½ cup                         brown or coconut sugar

½ cup                         peanut butter, or any nut butter of your choice

1 cup                          cake flour or all purpose

2 tsp                           baking powder

1 tsp                           bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp                           fine salt

1 handful                  pecan nuts, roughly chopped

How to do it:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 °C and line a 2 muffin tins with muffin wrappers or non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, mash the bananas with a fork, they don’t have to be mashed too well, it’s nice to have a couple lumpy bits.
  3. Add the nut butter and sugar and mix until well combined.
  4. Sift in your dry ingredients and mix through until all the flour is incorporated, don’t over mix.
  5. Portion the batter into the tins, make them about ¾ full. My batter made 8 biggish muffins.
  6. Sprinkle the tops with your pecan nuts and bake for 15-18 minutes. Or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
