Lunchbox legends: Banana passionfruit 'schoffin' muffins!

Where did the school holidays go?  We even had an extra week for our trip and it still seems to have flown!  In our house there's usually at least one child who is itching to get back to school but this year, there are none.  I think it's because it's been such a busy holiday period for us perhaps.

So here I am last minute thinking of my school snacks.  My girls call these 'Schoffins'.  This is short for 'school muffins' but also because they scoff them pretty quickly.  During our farmgate trail this weekend we found the most gorgeous passionfruit... and my girls have gone 'off'' bananas.  So I set to work... using the leftover banana yoghurt too..

You can use any yoghurt you like and use tinned passionfruit if you can't find any fresh - but these are lovely and light with a sweet tang.  They will be 'scoffed' in no time.

Makes 22 muffins
3 cups self raising flour
1 cup caster sugar
3/4 cup canola oil
1 egg
1 medium sized banana (ripe as you can) peeled
300ml banana (or your choice) yoghurt
pulp of 4 medium or 2 large passionfruit (or 1/4 cup if using canned)

Preheat oven to 190 degrees c fan forced

Put all the ingredients in a bowl, yes all of them!  You can mash up the banana beforehand if you like but I forgot....!
look at these lovely passionfruit!

Doesn't look very appetising now... but give it a mix...

... for about 1 minute and it's all well combined, you WILL put your finger in to taste it and it's delicious!

Scoop or spoon into your cupcake or muffin cases and pop in the oven for about 12-15 minutes

 Leave them to cool for about 10 minutes... they are lovely warm too!   I've popped mine in the freezer ready to go for school!
