Something To Get You Through Monday Morning

I’m on a bit of a roll with banana-based recipes at the moment. I just hate chucking away over-ripe bananas when they are so perfect for baking. So this time I created a breakfast banana muffin recipe inspired by my beautiful friend’s recipe, thanks Kelsey!

Makes approximately 8 small muffins.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-3 over-ripe mashed bananas
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1tsp cinnamon

Method:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 170 degrees and prepare your muffin tints with muffin holders.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut oil and honey. Add the eggs and whisk well.
  3. Add the mashed bananas and milk, followed by the banking soda, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  4. Add the flour and oats to the mixture and mix together using a large spoon (mix until combined). You can add extra ingredients here if you like such as chocolate chips or nuts.
  5. Fill your muffin holders about two-thirds of the way. Sprinkle a few oats on top.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean).
  7. Enjoy!!!

I loved serving these muffins with yogurt sprinkled with honey on the side. These are also great take-away snacks!

If you have any suggestions please feel free to shoot them to me!

Nutty over Nutorious

Let me introduce you to everything nutty and inbetween’: Nutorious (be careful, it’s addictive)…

Less than a year ago, my friend Jim launched an Instagram account displaying his passion for delicious and healthy food. Not only is it rather unconventional for a 20 year old male to be so gifted and passionate about cooking, what’s even more amazing is the fact that Jim’s creative flair never ceases to flourish. Nutorious mixes flavours, scents and spices in a way that constantly leaves you wondering how his recipes only get better and better. Take for example Nutorious’ iconic muffins. A dozen muffins are sold every morning at one of Sydney’s best Cafes called The Penny Royale and every day a new flavour comes out which always leaves you mouth-watering.

I would describe Jim’s food as healthy and innovate cafe style cooking. His Instagram and Tumblr are full of fantastic ideas for recipes especially for breakfast and lunch. Nutorious also documents excellent food places around Sydney which provide lovely inspirations for Cafe lovers like me! I would definitely recommend you check it out.
