Jul 20, 2020

This week we're sharing this recipe from Club Peloton member Shona Virden, Elliott Wood. Shona's granola banana muffins are easy to make and the perfect pick-me-up snack mid-ride.  Enjoy! 

 

 

Granola Banana Muffins:

 

Makes approximately 24 cakes.

 

Easy to make and a delicious pick-me-up mid-ride; feel free to mix and match ingredients if you don’t like some, as I’ve found that most nuts and fruit found in the cupboard work pretty well! Will last about a week in a cake tin/tupperware, and can also be frozen. Sugar can be reduced to 250-300g if you prefer a more savoury snack.

 

Ingredients:

450g plain flour

400g caster sugar

2tsp baking powder

1tsp salt

2 eggs, lightly beaten

175ml milk (alternatives such as oat/almond also work)

2 tsp vanilla extract

225g melted butter, cooled

2 bananas, mashed

1 banana, chopped

125g granola (I prefer plain unsweetened, but feel free to experiment)

125g chopped/crushed walnuts (or any nuts you have in the cupboard)

125g shredded coconut

50g banana chips

 

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175C/155C fan  and line muffin tins with paper cases.
  2. Other than the chopped banana and banana chips, mix everything in a bowl.
  3. Once you have a consistent mixture, fold in the chopped banana.
  4. Spoon the mixture equally between the paper cases and sprinkle the tops with the banana chips.
  5. Bake for 25 mins, or until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  6. Jump on the bike with a few in your back pocket, you’ll be racing up Box Hill in no time!
