Recipe's preparation

    It's so easy, let's get baking
  1. Step 1: Preheat oven to 175C (fan forced)

    Step 2: Prepare 12 silicon muffin cases in your muffin tray or moulds (I don't grease mine and they lift out just fine).

    Step 3: WET INGREDIENTS - Add peeled bananas, egg, olive oil and vanilla bean paste to bowl.
    Combine 5 seconds, speed 5. Scrape down sides of bowl.

    Step 4: DRY INGREDIENTS - Add all dry ingredients (EXCEPT the sultanas/white choc chips and 12 whole walnuts) to bowl.
    Combine 15 seconds, speed 5. Scape down sides of bowl.

    Step 5: Add sultanas / white choc chips.
    Counter-clockwise operation 5 seconds, speed 3.

    Step 6: Spoon into muffin cases. Press a whole walnut into the top of each muffin.

    Step 7: Bake for 20 minutes at 175C

Accessories you need



You could substitute 50g of the flour with ground or blitzed oats.

For a gluten free (GF) variation you could substitute the flour for 50/50 coconut and almond flour.

To dress them up for a morning tea or party they're delicious with a cream cheese frosting.

Great recipe for diabetics or for a sugar free snack.

Baking with kids
I make this with my 3 year old and it's a quick easy and fun recipe to make with him. Plus he gets to enjoy a couple of sultanas as we bake.

Today, he decided to put sultanas on top instead of the whole walnuts. I'll try and remember to upload a picture next time with the walnuts on top.

The only downside... he can't take these to preschool in his lunchbox due to the nuts but it makes them extra great for home days and weekends and they're great for me for work morning tea or weekend morning teams with guests.

(I've adapted this recipe from a non-thermi recipe that was adapted from another recipe that I'm not sure the source of so I can't make any specific credits but thank you for the great start!)
