We have a bit of a contradiction today in this post about food--some healthy and some not quite so healthy and some improv and some planned. First, we have the Christmas pizza.
Just before I did the pizza, I baked some banana muffins.
These are a variation on my usual soaked oat muffin recipes. For this I soaked 2 cups of jumbo porridge oats (old fashioned oats in the US) in 1 1/2 cups milk overnight. When I was ready to bake them I added 3 mashed up medium sized bananas, 1 egg, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, and some coconut. Then I added 1 1/4 cup wholemeal flour, 1 teaspoon each baking soda and salt and stirred that in before adding a handful of walnut 'crumbs.' I whizzed walnuts in my little chopper and used them that way. I baked for about 20 minutes at 180C (I baked these at 400 when I made them in the US) and ended up with 15 muffins.
These will be handy to have for breakfast, snacks, or even dessert. 😋
