Instructions:

Put everything nicely ready before you start, that works the easiest, the quickest and the neatest.

Have you washed your hands? Are you wearing your apron? Great, let’s get started then!

With food processor:

  1. Start by peeling the bananas and break them roughly into pieces and put them in the food processor.

  1. Now add the eggs.  To break an egg, first crack it on the side of the bowl, or on the kitchen top. Do it gently so you don’t destroy the egg, but firmly enough so it cracks. Then hold the eggs with your two hands, while you push your two thumbs into the crack, very closely together. Now hold the egg above the bowl and pull it apart. The inside of the egg should now fall into the bowl and you should be holding the entire shell. If you are unsure at first, break the egg above a separate bowl, just in case some of the shell fall down. So you can pick the pieces of shell out easily before you add the egg to the rest of your mixture.
  2. Mix the bananas and the eggs really well together.
  3. Melt the coconut oil in a little bowl in the microwave (under 30 seconds) and add it to your mixture.
  4. Add all the other ingredients and mix.
  5. Now switch the oven on, put it on 180 º Celsius

Without food processor:

  1.  If you are not using the food processor, then mash the bananas with a fork in the soup dish. Then move the banana mash to your big bowl.
  2. Now add the eggs.  To break an egg, first crack it on the side of the bowl, or on the kitchen top. Do it gently so you don’t destroy the egg, but firmly enough so it cracks. Then hold the eggs with your two hands, while you push your two thumbs into the crack, very closely together. Now hold the egg above the bowl and pull it apart. The inside of the egg should now fall into the bowl and you should be holding the entire shell. If you are unsure at first, break the egg above a separate bowl, just in case some of the shell fall down. So you can pick the pieces of shell out easily before you add the egg to the rest of your mixture.
  3. Mix the eggs and bananas together with your whisker.
  4. Melt the coconut oil in a little bowl in the microwave (under 30 seconds) and add it to your mixture, stir really well.
  5. Add the lemon juice, the oats and the baking soda to the mixture and stir again really well.
  6. Now switch the oven on, put it on 180 º Celsius.

For both food processor users and manual workers:

  1. The dough is ready! Now place the muffin cases in the muffin tray. It is best to spray some oil on the inside of the muffin cases to make sure the muffins will come out of the cases easily when you are ready to eat them. If you have a baking or cooking spray to hand, use that to line the muffin cases with some oil. These sprays work best if you hold them upright, so you may have to keep the muffin tray a bit upright as well.  If you haven’t got such a spray, just put some oil in a little bowl and use the kitchen brush to line the muffin cases with some oil that way. Try to have just a thin layer of oil.

  1. Almost ready! Now it is time to get the dough into the muffin cases.  This works best if you use 2 tablespoons. Use the first one to scoop some dough up, use the second one to scrape the dough of the first spoon into the muffin case.  Fill the muffin cases for about three quarters, so you leave some space for the muffins to rise whilst baking.
  2. You can put the muffins in the oven now, but if you want to have a real professional finish, you need one more step:  Take two little bowls, one with some desiccated coconut and one with some brown sugar. Use a teaspoon to spread some of the coconut over each muffin. Then use your thumb and index finger to spread just a tiny bit of the brown sugar over each muffin as well.
  3. If you have a baking spray, you can now spray a bit of that on each muffin. That gives them a beautiful golden colour when they are ready.

  1. There you go! Voilà!  Ziezo! Das ist es! The muffins are completely ready to go into the oven now. Place them in the oven on 180 º Celcius for 20 minutes.  After 20 minutes carefully prick in one of the muffins with a toothpick or a skewer. If it comes out dry, the muffins are ready. If some wet dough sticks to it still, the muffins are not ready, give them a few more minutes, but not more than 5 and test again.

Is this how they look more or less? Great!
