Savoury Banana Muffins

Savoury Banana Muffins

I was looking to bake something with my little daughter and having recently moved back to my home country found myself with no baking supplies. We wandered down to a local grocery store and picked up what I generally think of to be the basics, and then decide what to make. I wanted to make something that my daughter would like and that I wouldn’t feel too bad about her eating. It turned out very delicious! I would recommend that you try these easy to make savoury muffins.

With the ingredients in my apartment here is what I came up with:


1 ½ cups all-purpose whole grain flour

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon white chia seeds

1 tablespoon oat bran (hot cereal grind)

2 or 3 mashed bananas

¾ cup brown sugar

1 egg

⅓ cup melted butter

Preparation Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 175°C (350°F).
  2. Prepare your muffin pan or silicon cups appropriately to keep the muffins from sticking. Lightly oiling the pan/silicon cups can help make it easier to remove the muffins and clean up afterwards.
  3. In a bowl, sift together the whole grain flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, white chia seeds and oat bran.
  4. In another bowl (or a mixer) combine the bananas, brown sugar, egg and melted butter.
  5. Gradually mix the sifted dry ingredients in keeping the texture as smooth as possible until all ingredients are combined.
  6. Spoon the mix into muffin cups until the mix is close to level with the top of the cups.
  7. Bake in your preheated oven for 12-15 minutes for standard muffin cups. you can check to see if they are done using a toothpick or by lightly pressing on the top of a muffin and seeing is it quickly springs back to its shape.
  8. Cool a bit and enjoy!
