Ingredients

Muffins

  • 2 large ripe bananas mashed
  • 200 g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 50 ml sunflower oil
  • 75 g light brown soft unrefined cane sugar.
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8 tbsp reduced fat peanut butter

Filling

  • 12 tsp x ½ . reduced fat peanut butter 1/2 tsp. per muffin

Topping

  • 100 g fat free quark
  • 1 tbsp and ½ . sifted icing sugar
  • 1 tsp . lemon juice
  • Lemon rind for decoration

Instructions

Muffins

  • Preheat oven to 180C (fan) and line a 12 hole silicon muffin / fairy cake tin with paper cases.
  • In a bowl sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  • In a larger mixing bowl mix together oil, sugar, eggs, mashed bananas, vanilla extract and peanut butter until the mixture is thick.
  • Add the flour mixture from the first bowl to the banana mixture and gradually fold all of the ingredients together.
  • Spoon a little of the muffin mixture between the 12 paper cases. Just enough to cover the base of each of the cases.

  • Add the rest of the muffin mixture into each paper case.
  • Bake for 15 – 20 minutes in the centre of an oven until risen and brown. Check the centre of one with a tooth pick to ensure it comes out clean.
