What’s better than a tasty home-made muffin to start the day? Well, as the title suggests, they’re beautiful banana breakfast muffins. Actually, they’re completely bananalicious, for brunch, a snack or any time.
Quick. Fresh. Delicious. What could be better?
These light and tasty muffins are the perfect treat for breakfast, brunch or any time. They are classic Quick, Fresh, Delicious – easy to make and great to eat.
These are wonderful for using up those overripe bananas and you want a change from standard banana cake. They’re really quick and easy to whip up and rise to a golden perfection. An added bonus is they freeze well, so if you’re not making for a crowd, you can simply freeze them and remove them and plac ein a container to thaw in the fridge overnight.
On the subject of overripe bananas – there is simply no excuse for throwing them away. They are great for muffins, cake and can be frozen to be added to smoothies.
They’re also great for desserts, adding a richness that underripe bananas just can’t seem to manage. Try them sliced and sautéed in a pan with a caramel made from brown sugar, butter and a dash of cream. But that’s only if you’re not watching your weight. They’re a bit decadent that way.
But back to the muffins…
I like adding walnuts to this recipe, which adds a nice crunch. You can leave them out, or substitute them for your another nutty flavour. Try pecans – or even macadamia nuts! That’s the beauty of recipes like this, you can tailor them to suit your own taste.
Or add another type of fruit! You could try my banana and blueberry muffins, which blends the bright, juicy flavour of blueberries with banana for another delicious treat.
Whatever way you look at them, they’re bananalicious!

Yummy Banana and blueberry muffins are full of flavour, with the bright juiciness of the blueberries adding another dimension.
Home-made English muffins are a huge leap from the store-bought variety. They’re fluffy and tasty and are a 100% happy food.
Make your own crumpets and you’ll have the sort of comfort breakfast that sings of comfort. These are best slathered in good butter and drenched in a good quality honey. And while they take a little patience to make, the effort is well worth it. They’re simply yummy!
Note: you can use standard egg rings to make these in, but if you can get your hands on proper crumpet rings, like these from Melbourne’s Kitchen Warehouse, then it’s worth the investment.
