It’s Easter which means hot cross bun time! Why don’t you try something different this year and give our hot cross muffins a go! Healthy, packed full of energy and most of all, DELICIOUS!


  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup dried fruit e.g. raisins, cranberries
  • 2 small or 1 large banana mashed
  • 1 cup wholemeal or plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder – 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup oats or 1 weetbix
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 2 tsp water


  1.  Mix wet ingredients together and using a fork mix through dry ingredients until just combined.
  2. Spoon into muffin tins with paper cases. Bake at 180deg for 15mins until a knife goes through clean and they spring back lightly with touch.
  3. Let the muffins cool down while mixing icing sugar and water to make an icing. Place in a small plastic bag. Cut 1 corner off the bag and begin pipping a cross on each muffin.
  4. Enjoy!
