  • 200ml skimmed milk
  • 3tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 large free-range eggs, beaten

  • 250g self-raising flour

Method
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 4. Line a 12-hole muffin tray with large muffin cases.

  • In a bowl, mash the banana well with a fork. Add the milk, sunflower oil, beaten eggs and orange zest. Measure out 4tbsp of the orange juice and add to the bowl. Mix well.

  • In a separate large bowl, mix together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, brown sugar, sweetener, ground ginger, vanilla seeds and dried fruit. Add the banana mixture and mix until just combined.

  • Divide the mixture between the muffin cases and sprinkle the desiccated coconut and rolled oats on top. Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 15-20 mins, until the muffins are golden on top and firm to the touch.

  • Remove the tray from the oven and allow the muffins to cool a little on a wire rack, then eat while still warm. These muffins will keep for up to 3 days in a sealed tin. You can reheat them in a preheated oven at 180C/160C Fan/Gas 3 for 5 mins.
