Serves: 4

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Oven temperature: 180°C

• 150 ml each butter and sugar

• 2 eggs

• 1 green apple, grated

• 250 ml milk

• 250 ml each self-raising and wholewheat flour

• 5 ml baking soda

• 4 ripe bananas

• 100 ml peanut butter

• 500 ml honey-flavoured yoghurt

• milk

1 Preheat the oven. Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add the eggs, one by one. Add the apple, milk, self-raising flour, wholewheat flour and baking soda, and beat until just mixed. Spoon into a greased giant muffin tray with six hollows and bake for 20-25 minutes or until cooked.

2 Mix the bananas, peanut butter and yoghurt in a blender until smooth and dilute the mixture with a little milk. Pour into tall glasses, sprinkle finely chopped peanuts over the top and serve with the apple muffins.

TIP Add ice for a more runny, ice-cold smoothie if your blender can crush ice.
