Banana and Date Muffins

Ham and Corn Muffins

Lunch doesn’t always have to be a sandwich, you can switch it up with a salad, wrap or a savoury muffin.  This is a delicious muffin, especially if you are introducing the kids to the world of savoury muffins.  It’s easy to make and freezeable.  I take them out of the freezer in the morning, […]

I didn’t do as much baking as I would have liked. Usually I […]

  • Thanks for this recipe – I need to use up some bananas! I might try it with sultanas instead of the choc chips (my eldest doesn’t like chocolate!), and see how it goes. Did the kids like it?ReplyCancel

    • My kids came home today saying they loved them. Yay, win win cause they are healthy!! Adding sultanas is a great idea!ReplyCancel

      • Awesome. I will have to try them tomorrow morning. We are still on school holidays here, and I need something to take to a friend’s house. Thanks for the update :) ReplyCancel

  • Erin Stickman

    I was wondering what to do with the weetbix “scraps”… Will try these this arvo.
    Thanks :D ReplyCancel

    • great use for weetibix scraps, I used scraps in mine, I worked out my scraps was equivalent to one biscuit. Hope you enjoy the recipeReplyCancel

  • naomi

    i brought bananas today and got given some so i currently have about 12 bananas in the house, we would never get through this many! will try this tonight, thanks!ReplyCancel

    • Naomi, freeze the bananas that you can’t use so you can use them for recipes in the future. I freeze them with the peel on, then thaw on the bench for 2 or so hours and then peel and add to the recipe. They don’t look the best thawed, but they still taste exactly the same. Hope you enjoy this recipeReplyCancel

        I mash them, put them in a ziplock bag and then freeze them as they take up less space and also are faster to defrost.ReplyCancel

  • robbo

  • Stacy M

    I’m in the US. What is weetbix? Hoping to make these for our house! Love your site!ReplyCancel

    • Sally-Anne

      You can use Weetabix in the US. I’ve just made these this afternoon, and my kids have devoured them. Many thanks.ReplyCancel

    • Sally-Anne is right – Weetbix are a wheat flake “brick”, if you will. Weetabix are a perfect alternative.ReplyCancel

  • Kate

    Hi, has anyone made these using a sugar alternative? Just wondering of rice malt syrup or stevia would work (and how much to use) I’m not much of a cook so need specifics!!ReplyCancel

    • Opal

      You could try honey. I’m going to try 2 tablespoons when i make these next week. I swap honey for a lot of things with sugar in itReplyCancel

    • Opal is right, you can use any alternative you prefer. The sugar is to help add a bit of sweetness as Weetbix can be a bit dry.ReplyCancel

  • BB

    We made these today and they taste great! The only thing is they have really stuck to the muffins cases for some reason?ReplyCancel

  • Karina

    Do they freeze ok?ReplyCancel

  • Allison Clark

    Yummo I made these today using wild berry weetbix bites (1 cup) and the kids have gobbled them up. I didn’t have chocolate milk bits so I used white chocolate bits which I think made the flavour a little more caramel. Will try next time with wholemeal flour and omit the sugar.ReplyCancel
