cup sul­tanas (or raisins) (op­tional) cup golden syrup cup oil (like grape­seed) 3 large ba­nanas (very ripe), mashed

1 tea­spoon vanilla essence or ex­tract 2 free-range eggs

cup yo­ghurt (dairy or co­conut)

1 level tea­spoon bak­ing soda (lump-free or sifted)

1 cup blue­ber­ries (fresh or de­frosted and well drained) Pre­heat oven to 200 de­grees Cel­sius. Line a 12-hole muf­fin tin with pa­per­cases.

Sift flour and cin­na­mon into a medium-sized bowl. Stir in salt, bran flakes and sul­tanas (if us­ing).
