Banana and Pistachio Nut muffins straight from the oven
Banana and Pistachio Nut Muffins straight from the oven.

These muffins are "gourmet" was the response of the lady as she tasted a Banana and Pistachio Nut muffin for the first time. I personally enjoyed these muffins straight from the oven and not only did they taste good, but I found out they are packed with nutrients that benefit our health as well.

Bananas and pistachio nuts contain vitamin B6, vitamin C, manganese, potassium and are also a good source of fibre. Why not try these muffins as a snack or pop them into your kid's lunch box for a different treat.

Preparation time 10 minutes
makes 6 muffins)

Ingredients

1 large banana or 1 1/2 small bananas mashed
1/8 cup of Sunbeam pistachio nuts crushed
1/2 cup of wholemeal self raising flour
1/4 cup of milk
1/8 cup of raw sugar
25 gram of melted butter
1 egg
1 tablespoon of Capilano Honey

Method

1. Preheat oven to 160c degrees.

2. Grease a muffin tray (If you desire to make 12 muffins just double the recipe).

3. Mix in a bowl the flour, milk, sugar, butter and egg until just combined.

4. Mash 3/4 of the banana and slice the rest into thin slices, keeping approximately 2 slices of banana for the top of each muffin.
Slice Banana
Slice 2 pieces of banana for each muffin top.

5. Crush the Sunbeam pistachio nuts with the back of a spoon and your fingers breaking them into smaller pieces.
Pistachio Nuts
Crushed Pistachio nuts.

6. Add the mashed banana and 1/2 of the crushed pistachio nuts to the bowl and mix through the muffin mix until just combined.

7. Place heaped spoonfuls of the muffin mixture into a greased muffin tray. Evenly distribute the muffin mixture between each muffin to ensure you have the same sized muffins when cooked.

8. Place 2 slices of the banana on the top of each muffin and sprinkle the crushed pistachio nuts over the banana slices.

9. Drip a little bit of honey over each muffin top with a spoon or if you have a Capilano squeeze honey bottle (this is preferred) squeeze directly from the bottle. The honey compliments the wholemeal flour by giving it a golden brown look and adds a little sweet taste when you bite into the top of the muffin.

11. Enjoy straight from the oven or cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
