Love Bananas?

Maya Oran-Banana Muffin

I want to share this recipe on my blog for the sake of its amazing taste. The outcome is lush and moist muffins. They are by far the easiest to make and super healthy. It uses, whole-wheat flour, All-Bran cereals, skimmed milk and a tiny amount of butter. Children relish them. I baked a dozen of Banana muffins today and their aroma permeated my kitchen. Mmmmm!

My conscience

-Wake up!! (snapping fingers) 

I have to confess that as a food stylist I have to be embarrassed of how those muffins look like. They don’t rise like other do and the texture is a little lumpy. Well let’s say it’s more authentic like that:) But I do promise you a flavorful snack/breakfast, not too sweet but truly delectable.

  1. Sounds delish and great for kids! Two questions though, All Bran flakes or the original cereal (look like sticks)? And if I don’t want to put in raisins, can I put it an extra banana for the taste-factor? Lovely website!

    • Thanks! Yes the sticks all bran and not the flakes. This recipe has a small amount of sugar, the raisin is there to add sweet to it. If you’d like to omit it I suggest that you increase the amount of sugar to half a cup.
