This muffin recipe is courtesy of Paula Deen. I love the flavour of coffee in baking, so when I found this recipe i decided i had to give it a try. I did change some of the ingredients like the flour and reducing the amount of sugar and oil.


1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup spelt light flour

1 tsp baking soda

pinch of salt

1/4 cup oil

4 mashed ripe bananas

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 1/2 tbsp strong coffee


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line and spray a 12 cup muffin tray or use silicone muffin cups. In a bowl mix oil and mashed bananas. Add the sugar, egg, coffee and vanilla. Mix until combined and then add in baking soda and salt and mix once again. Combine the flour into the mixture and scoop into muffin tray. Slice a piece of banana on top of each muffin. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let stand and then transfer onto a cooling rack. Enjoy!
