Banana and blueberry skinny muffins

A wind of panick has blown over my kitchen.

I've realised that if this bitterly cold winter ever comes to an end, the sun will come back, and I'll have to wear skirts without my super 350deniers tights that hide my cellulite.
Like a baby penguin trying to get through the winter without freezing to death on the ice field, my body has been covered by a thick layer of fat for the past few months.
The Man yet has solemnly announced "If you even think of going on a diet, I'll stop speaking to you"

There's only one solution left : CHEATING.
ie....making super skinny puddings disguised in indulgent cakes. 

Can I get away with it? 
Challenge accepted!

Banana and blueberry super skinny muffins 

This recipe is super skinny and super easy to make. 
I used real cow milk because that's what I had in my kitchen, but the original recipe is completely vegan and calls for rice milk, what don't you give it a try?


1 banana, very ripe
3/4 of a cup of fresh blueberries
90 gr flour
50 gr porridge oats
2 tbsp light muscovado sugar
45 gr nuts (whichever you like. I used walnuts, croasely chopped
2 tbsp vegetable oil
50 ml milk
1 tbsp shredded coconut
1 pinch of salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Make the muffins:

Preheat the oven at 185deg C.

1/ In a big bowl, mash the banana, add the flour, oats, sugar, nuts and mix with a wooden spoon

2/ Add the oil and the milk, mix well

3/ Add the coconut, blueberries, salt, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda and mix until just combine (try not to overmix)

4/ Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto a silicone mat (or baking tray lined with  baking parchment) and bake for appox 10min until risen and golden

5/ Transfer to a cooling rack and heat warm with vanilla ice-cream or custard

The Man'sVerdict: these muffins are very light and fruity. They make up for a nice week night dessert or heathly snack...but some of us will probably want to deep them in melted chocolate or a swimming pool of custard, cause in all honesty, they might be lacking of the oompfh factor we could expect from a real treat.
