Banana and pistachio oat muffins

By now we should all know how much I enjoy breakfast! With these muffins you're really ticking all the boxes for a good start to the day. You've got a fruit serving, hardly any calories (about 90 per muffin), some fibre and a good hit of protein from the nuts and extra peanut butter (I'm a crunchy guy but if you dig smooth who am I to judge?). Make these the night before if you want - it might seem like a mission but it really doesn't take long at all. That way you can have a proper lie-in the next day and just grab one before you head out.

Okay, what you'll need to make 6 muffins:
  • Three quarters of a cup of whole wheat flour
  • Three quarters of a cup of oats
  • One teaspoon of baking powder
  • One teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Half a teaspoon of baking soda
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • A third of a cup of honey
  • Two egg whites
  • Two bananas, mashed
  • A quarter of a cup of fat-free milk
  • Half a cup of unsweetened applesauce
  • A handful or two of chopped pistachios

Okay, what to do:

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients.

2. In a separate bowl mix the honey, the applesauce, the egg whites, the bananas, the nuts and the milk. Add the dry ingredients and work them in.

3. Grease muffin tins and fill them two-thirds of the way. Sprinkle a few extra pistachios on the top.

4. Bake for about 20 minutes or until done.

Now, I had mine this morning with some fresh banana and a good smear of organic peanut butter and let me tell you...I am looking and feeling gooooooooood. You can too kids.
