Cinnamon Eggy Muffins

Eggy Muffins

 

Ingredients

1 large banana

2 eggs

1/4 cup of chopped dates or apricots or raisins

1 tbsp cinnamon

1 tbsp hemp seeds

Pinch of salt

Muffin cups or coconut oil to grease muffin tray

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 375F, 190C, gas mark 5
  2. Mash bananas in a bowl until runny and juicy
  3. Add eggs to the bowl along with the other ingredients and mix well
  4. I add 3 tablespoons of mixture per muffin cup, making sure I get a good amount of dried fruit in each cup
  5. Bake for 18-20 minutes. The muffins should bounce like a sponge when you lightly press down on the top

These muffins are super easy to make – I find it’s less mess and a lot easier than preparing scrambled eggs. This mixture will make about 6 muffins – my girls usually have 2 each. I usually make these with Number 2, once I get her out of bed, and pop them in the oven before I get Number 1 out of bed. It takes about 5-7 minutes to prepare and the girls (and Dad) love them!  Double the recipe to make double the amount.  You can also add fresh fruit, however, I find it makes the muffins a little wet.

    These look so yummy and easy to make, I might test them out on Jacob tomorrow! Why grind the Chia seeds? Aren’t they already really small?

      Hi Lisa Marie,
      Chia seeds are hydrophilic, meaning they absorb water and expand. I use ground chia because I find they absorb liquid more quickly, so when I’m popping them into yogurt or porridge or smoothies I find they don’t require as much liquid and it doesn’t take as long for them to expand. Just my personal preference. Hope Jacob enjoys them!

    Just curious, the recipe says “hemp seeds” but the comments refer to ground chia. Does the recipe work best with chia or hemp seeds?

      Hi Andrea,
      I use both – the ground chia seeds will bind it together a tiny bit more, so if you have a bigger banana and/or larger eggs, you can use those. They’re also a bit more fibrous, so remember to offer a bit more water throughout the day, if you’re going to use ground chia. I really hope you enjoy!! Amanda 🙂
