Recipe : Banana, pineapple and oats muffin

I like muffins. It is fail-proof, mess-free kinda food that I can whip up within minutes.


1. 5 cups oats

1.5 cups self-raising flour (or normal flour + 1 tsp of baking powder)

1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda (or 2 teaspoon of baking powder)

0.5 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

0.5 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup corn (or olive) oil

2 large bananas, mashed

half a can of pineapple, chopped (you can omit or substitute with other type of fruits)

Mix everything. The texture should not be too hard nor too watery. Adjust accordingly. If too watery, add more oats. If too hard, add more milk.

Bake in muffin trays, cupcakes or any type of small casings.

Takes about 15 mins in a 220 deg. celcius oven.


Muffin does not keep well because it will become ‘dry’ when left overnight as it uses very little oil. But it is certainly much healthier than cakes as it uses only a quarter quantity of oil compare to cakes which use butter.

I made 12 muffins with the large paper casings and they disappeared within minutes!

    Looks yummy… Must try out your recipe one of these days. Anyway, have you got a good recipe for creme brulee? The only good creme brulee I have tried in Penang are from Mr Ho Fine Food and E&O.

    boo – Yeah, by the time the tray got out of the oven, each of them has a plate waiting to grab their share. The photo shown is the 2nd tray. The first one disappeared before I got a chance to find my camera.

    babe – And healthy too. With oats and banana.

    lin – Unfortunately no leh. ‘Cos creme brulee uses very high quality cream which is too expensive for me to experiment. The one from Mr Ho very nice ya? I love it but sooo expensive ler. Tiny mouthful only.

    Your toddler is so lucky to have a mum who can bake and cook so well. He’ll grow up with lovely memories of the kitchen and food! 😉
