And you can even treat yourself to one of these yummy pupcakes, too. If they’re willing to share, that is!

On your marks, get set, bake!

What you’ll need

  • 68 grams plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 60 grams peanut butter
  • 1 medium banana peeled and mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • Muffin tin
  • Cupcake cases

What you need to do

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas mark 4. Line your tin with the paper cases ready for when your mix is made.
  2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and add the other ingredients and beat together to form a smooth paste.
  3. Let this mixture sit for about 15 minutes. Then, spoon it into the paper cases, filling each about two-thirds full.
  4. Tap the tin a couple of times to level out the mixture and to pop any airy bubbles!
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown or an inserted skewer comes out clean and let them cool.

You can store these treats in an airtight container for 2-3 days at room temperature or freeze so that they can be enjoyed at a later date.
