Nutty Wheat Banana Muffins

These moreish muffins are perfect for last minute tea time guests or a tasty breakfast when everything else breakfasty just isn’t quite cutting the mustard – simply throw a few ingredients at a bowel et voila, a taste bud tantalizing muffin in 20 minutes.  You could add some texture with chocolate chips or something healthier like seeds or nuts – these variations only came to me when I was taking them out of the oven so mine are just plain.  No matter as they are delicious as is with a light moist crumb.

  1. Oh – I don’t know what nutty wheat flour is. I’ll have to google it. I love how these are made with vanilla essence and yoghurt – that would add lovely flavour and texture xx

    • I took the liberty of taking this from the Snowflake website Charlie – “Snowflake Nutty Wheat High Bran Wheat Flour is whole-wheat flour that has been made from Snowflake White Bread Flour to which about 18% coarse wheaten bran has been added. It is the healthiest of all the flours, as it has high fibre content, which is an essential part of any diet. It is suitable for baking scones, muffins, bread, pastries and rusks.” I always double what’s called for when it comes to vanilla essence and when using my own recipes, I usually just pour it in! Have a super day Charlie. 🙂 xo

    • Thanks Angie! This is the exact description of nutty wheat flour from the snowflake website: “Snowflake Nutty Wheat High Bran Wheat Flour is whole-wheat flour that has been made from Snowflake White Bread Flour to which about 18% coarse wheaten bran has been added. It is the healthiest of all the flours, as it has high fibre content, which is an essential part of any diet. It is suitable for baking scones, muffins, bread, pastries and rusks.”
      Any flour would work well with these muffins Angie and I am sure with your wonderful bread baking, you have some great flours on hand to try.
      Have a lovely day. 🙂 xo

  2. “Moreish”, indeed! And ready in 20 minutes? These sounds too good to be true! Though I like your suggestions for adding nuts or chocolate chips, plane would be fine for me. Served warm with a bit of butter or honey and I’d be very happy.
