1 egg
2 tbsp honey
1 ripe banana, mashed
80g smooth peanut butter
40g wholemeal flour
45g rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
70ml water

Essential kit

You will need a mini cupcake/muffin tin and paper cases.


Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas mark 4. Line a mini cupcake/ muffin tin with paper cases.

Put the egg, honey and mashed banana into a bowl and stir to combine. Add the peanut butter and beat together to form a smooth paste. Add the flour, oats and baking powder and stir to form a dough-like consistency. Add the water and mix until well combined.

Let this mixture sit for 15 minutes. Stir a few times, then spoon it into a the paper cases, fillling each about two-thirds full.

Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown or an inserted skewer comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

Store in an airtight container for 2-3 days at room temperature, or freeze so that the cupcakes can be enjoyed at another time.
