  2. Sieve the flour with the baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder, salt and mix well. It’s best to sieve the entire dry ingredient at least 3 times to give aeration in the flour which helps in making the cake light.
  3. Dust the walnuts and sunflower seeds with 1-2 tbsp. of wheat flour, coat well and keep aside. This will prevent them from sinking to the bottom. Keep aside.
  4. In a bowl mash the bananas well or puree them with a hand blender.
  5. In another bowl mix yogurt with brown sugar, olive oil and vanilla essence.
  6. Add banana puree to curd mixture and blend well.
  7. In a mixing bowl fold the banana batter with flour and mix until just combined.

Quick Tips:

  1. You can use any oil like coconut oil, sunflower oil, vegetable oil or any neutral flavored oil.
  2. You can use any chopped dry fruits, nuts, seeds or chocolate chips of your choice.
  3. It may take more or less time than mentioned time here depending on the temperature of oven and the size of the pan. As the temperature varies from oven to oven so take your call and keep an eye. The benchmark is that a tooth pick inserted in the cake should come out clean.
  4. You can store left over muffins, just wrap in a cling or store in an air tight container for 3-4 days.
  5. Warm before serving.
  6. Sweetness of the bread can be adjusted as per your preferences.
