Apple, banana and cinnamon muffins

These delicious muffins are so easy to make. They have dates and walnuts for added flavour, which you can replace with your favourite dried nuts, seeds and fruit.



  • 1 1/2 cup plain flour (all purpose flour)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar (or preferred sweetener)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 large ripe banana

  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped dates
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C fan forced (355°F).
  2. In a mixing bowl, mash the banana and combine with apple sauce and oil.
  3. In another mixing bowl, combine and mix all dry ingredients as well as dates and walnuts.
  4. Add the wet mixture slowly to the dry mixture, stirring and folding until just combined.
  5. Grease a muffin tin and scoop equal portions of the batter into the tins.
