Breakfast Banana Muffins

I have been making these banana muffins for years, but only just recently have I taken to having them hot out of the oven for a breakfast treat.  The original recipe waits until they are cool and then add cinnamon frosting on top, but they never last long enough to get to this stage anymore!

I often bake them on a Sunday as a breakfast treat after a nice and well deserved lie in.  I also like to bake them when we have guests staying over, it’s amazing how the delicious aroma of freshly baked banana muffins gets them out of bed. ♥

I now bake these little wonders directly in the tin and not in paper muffin cases.  I came about this one day when I didn’t have any cases and so just I greased the muffin tin well and cut little round discs from parchment paper to put at the bottom.  The reason I do this all the time now is that: 1- I found that the muffin stuck a bit to the paper when you peeled it off and 2- the sides cook nice and crispy and adds to the breakfast muffin experience 🙂

To make them you will need:P1010812

  • 150g gluten free plain flour
  • 150g butter (or dairy free marg), melted
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 2 medium eggs, lightly beaten
  • 6 tbsp. of milk (or dairy free)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 2 small ripe bananas, mashed


  • preheat oven to 200C/180C(fan)/gas6
  • well grease your muffin tin and place the cut out discs at the bottom
  • sift the flour, baking powder and pinch of salt together in a bowl and then stir in the sugar
  • whisk the melted butter, eggs and milk in a separate bowl


  • slowly stir the butter mixture into the flour mixture and then fold in the mashed bananas.
  • then spoon into your prepared muffin tin and bake in the oven for 20 minutes
  • when nice and golden take out of the oven and let settle for a few minutes, then run a knife around the edges of the muffin and turn out.
Now it’s time to make a huge pot of tea and sit down with a couple of the scrumptious, warm muffins and a cuppa!
Enjoy ♥♥
