  • 85g butter
  • 125ml milk
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 125g Truvia for Baking Brown sugar alternative
  • 3 ripe medium bananas
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 tsp Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Extract
For the streusel topping
  • 25g butter, diced
  • 40g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp Truvia for Baking Brown sugar alternative
  • 25g pistachios, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon

Step by step

  1. Melt the butter in a small pan; remove from the heat, then add the milk and set aside to cool. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6 and line a muffin tin with 12 cases.

  2. For the topping, rub the butter into the flour until
    crumb-like. Stir in the Truvia, nuts and cinnamon.

  3. For the muffins, sift the flour, cinnamon, baking
    powder, bicarb and a pinch of salt into a large
    bowl, then stir in the Truvia.

  4. Mash the bananas with the egg and vanilla, then add to the dry ingredients with the buttery milk. Fold together until just combined; don’t overmix.

  5. Divide between the cases, then spoon the streusel on top. Bake for 18-20 minutes until risen and springy. Cool on a wire rack for at least 15 minutes. Keep for 5 days in an airtight container or freeze.
