Quick Banana Muffins 

The Mediterranean Diet is without doubt the most sustainable diet in the world right now. I spoke this week with Dr Keith Ayoob about the use of Stevia as a sweetener and the benefits of a Mediterranean Diet in relation to memory as well as general health.

And for these delicious all-in-one banana muffins with stevia to replace sugar you will need:

2 ripe bananas
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Grated rind of 1/4 lemon
3 tablespoons stevia
1 tablespoon oats
100g coconut
3 eggs
200g self raising flour
125 ml yoghurt
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
A few drops good vanilla essence
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Mash the banana and lemon juice, add the eggs and yoghurt and mix well. Add the vanilla, grated lemon rind and nutmeg. Then the Stevia and mix well. Sieve the self raising flour into a separate container. Add the oats, bicarbonate of soda and coconut. Prepare the muffin cases in a baking mould. Pour the batter and do not fill to the top as these muffins rise ! Mix the dry ingredients into the banana mix and gently fold in with a metal spoon. Do not over mix.. Pour the batter into the muffin cases and bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven at 160C.
