Lazy Banana Muffins (In the Oven in Just over 5 Minutes)

"A yummy easy muffin - I stumbled on in an attempt to use up the left over sour cream & some browning bananas - I whipped out my trusty blender and threw this togeather with some items I usually keep in the cupboard. In just over 5 minutes they were in the oven....and most of that time was spent trying to separate the patty papers from each over."

Ready In:
12 muffins




  • Pre heat oven to 180 c of 350f.
  • Grease & line muffin tins with liners.
  • In a blender place - egg, bananas, golden syrup, lite sour cream, canola oil & vanilla.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • In a large bowl combine remaining dry ingredients & make a well in the centre.
  • Pour banana blend into the well and mix until JUST combined (Over mixing will make a tough muffin and exhausts a chef who just wants to go put her feet up).

  • Yummy warm with a coffee.

    Nice discovery on a day I had bananas needing a home and great use of pantry items. The batter seemed a little thin, but baked into beautiful muffins. The muffins are delicious, lots of banana flavor and sweet without being cloying. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall 2012 Pick A Chef.

    I had terrific results even though on checking the recipe before scooping into the muffin papers I realized that I had forgotten the oil. I added it and stirred well to be sure that it was incorporated. Also I used Splenda (a rounded 1/2 cup) in place of the honey or syrup and used a generous 1/2 cup less of flour to make up for the lack of liquid by not using honey/syrup. Even with all of thin I still got yummy tasting muffins with a lovely texture. What more could you ask for?

    These were very light and so easy to make. I did make one change though.....I used 1 grated carrot in place of the chocolate chips.....someone had eaten them!!!! A keeper for me :)
