Rainy Sunday – in the middle of summer time. A perfect day to make some Banana Muffins.

Recently I stumbled over this recipe via ‘Dave Bakes’ and finally had yesterday the chance to make them. First of all, I am very impressed what Dave bakes. It’s always a new surprise when I read his posts and see which creations are possible.

On the other hand, it is no surprise that my eyes have been hit when seeing the Banana Muffins, as everything coming out of the oven with banana inside is straight on my favourite list. 🙂 yummy! So it was no surprise too on Sunday morning when I woke up, that I made my way directly to the kitchen and started the day with baking.

These Muffins are perfect for a lazy Sunday, surprising yourself, surprising others – your neighbours, I am sure they will be very happy too.

So I don’t want to waste too much words on this post, as it is simply not worth it. Let’s focus on the Muffins, enjoy! 😉

Banana Blueberry Ginger Muffins (found on Dave Bakes, recipe adjusted):

preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius and prepare muffin mold by either greasing with butter or putting paper cups into it

200gr spelt flour,
1 tsp baking powder,
1/4 tsp baking soda,
pinch of salt,
sift all together into a big bowl, set aside

70gr raw cane sugar,
2 tbsp maple syrup,
150gr plain yogurt,
1/2 banana (mashed),
2 tbsp olive oil,
1 egg,
(optional) 1.5 tbsp crystalized ginger (chopped), I left them out as I didn’t have any at home 😉
1/4 tsp powdered ginger,
mix in a bowl first, then put into the bowl with dry ingredients and whisk until blended

1/2 banana (chopped),
(optional) 100gr fresh blueberries,
fold in with a spatula

fill the molds with the pastry and bake for approx. 30 minutes (big size muffins)

Let cool down before taking them off the mold

    You’re so kind. And those look amazing! I’m glad you didn’t forget the egg like I did. 🙂

    1. thank you and also for the inspiration! 😉 yeah the egg, I really thought first to leave it but then decided to go the safe way. But good to know that i works as well without 😉
