Chai Spiced Banana Oat Muffin

Pin It!

We've been having proper Chai every weekend when we are home and by proper, I mean making it using Chai spices rather than using a Chai teabag. Here's my Chai Recipe if you are interested. Since we don't have the luxury of having a stove at work, making chai using a teabag would suffice during the week. 

This weekend, we made it again but I also felt like having some banana oat muffins so I thought why not combine the flavours of chai into the muffin and the outcome was just splendid! The Chai spiced muffin went well with a cup of freshly brewed chai and we loved it! However, I'm not too sure if it's to everyone's liking as it might just cause a chai overdose of sorts! 

I adapted this recipe from Gordon Ramsay Healthy Appetite, one that I use all the time as it always results in moist muffins. 

Makes 12 muffins.

100g Oats
200g plain flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/4 tsp salt
100g light brown sugar
4 large ripe bananas
1 large egg
60g light olive oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cardamom
1 tsp all spice
1 tsp ground ginger

Heat oven to 180 deg C/Gas4.
Line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper cases.
In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt, sugar and spices.
Mix well and make a well in the centre.
Mash bananas in another bowl.
Stir in beaten egg and light olive oil.
Add to dry mixture and fold through until combined. Don't overmix.
Spoon into paper cases and bake for 20-25 mins until brown and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
