"Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit as well;...
and not today's pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and outlook of a man."

½ cup pecan nuts or walnuts, chopped

2 free range or organic eggs, beaten

¼ cup (60ml) olive oil

¼ cup (60 ml) filtered water

¼ cup (60ml) honey

½ cup (125ml) flour

1 tsp (5ml) bicarbonate of soda

1tsp (5ml) sea salt


The fun:


  1. Preheat the oven to 180oC
  2. Soak the oats in 1 ½ cups (375ml) boiling water for 15 minutes.  Pour off excess water.
  3. Mix the mashed bananas, dates, nuts, and soaked oats together in a bowl.
  4. Add the eggs, oil, water and honey. Stir well
  5. Add the remaining sifted dry ingredients.
  6. Oil the muffin pan and place the raw mixture three-quarters of the way up each individual muffin mould.  Bake for 30-35minutes.
  7. Leave the muffins in the pan to cool slightly.  Remove and allow to cool and rest for at least half an hour on a wire cooling rack.

Cooks note: substitute the wheat flour with gluten free flour, rye flour or even experiment with almond meal if you want to reduce wheat in your diet.
