Crumble-topped Banana Muffins

I decided to use the banana cake recipe to make muffins and see what they were like with a crumble topping.  Verdict – delicious!

And at just 1 point each on No Count!  If tracking, they work out at 5 points each.


Ingredients for the muffins (makes 8):

  • 4 large ripe bananas
  • 100g oats blitzed in a food processor
  • 100g oat bran
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp mixed spice
  • 40g Flora light
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp Myprotein butterscotch sugar-free syrup
  • a tbsp lemon juice

Ingredients for the crumble topping:

  • 70g oats, blitzed in food processor
  • 50g oats
  • 40g Flora light
  • 2 flat tbsp Splenda


  1. Preheat the oven to 170C.
  2. Mash the bananas and mix in the 2 eggs, Myprotein syrup and lemon juice.  Set to one side.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the oats, oat bran, mixed spice and baking powder.
  4. Rub in the Flora with your fingers.
  5. Pour the banana mixture into this bowl and stir together.
  6. Make the crumble next by placing all the oats in a mixing bowl.
  7. Add the Flora and rub in with fingertips.
  8. Sprinkle over 2 tbsp Splenda and mix together.
  9. Spoon the banana mixture into muffin cases and then put some of the crumble mixture on the top of each one.
  10. Bake in the oven for 40 – 45 mins, and enjoy!

Served here with low fat natural yogurt and blueberries.

NB: I used paper muffin cases for a change but they would be better in a silicone muffin tray.

  1. I just want to try some banana muffins Helen, I’m counting so how many points each do you think the muffins would be without the crumble topping? Also I want to try apple cinnamon muffins do u think I could just substitute apple and use this recipe? I know you are the no count guru so if you don’t know about the points it’s no probs X hope ur keeping well x

    1. Hi Kristy, I’m very well thank you. It’s a rather busy week though:-) The muffins would be 3.5 points each if tracking, without the crumble topping: so I’d count the first one as 3 and the second one as 4 points:-) I hope you’re keeping well too, Helen xxx

    1. Thank you Tina! Yes, if you look under the Desserts section – there’s a blackberry tart, a strawberry tart and a mixed fruit tart. They could all be made as smaller individual ones if you wanted. Helen xxx
