Raspberry and Banana Muffins for morning tea

HAD to make these this morning. I'm on the 5:2 eating regime, and on the NON fasting days, something is called for with coffee! At least these had dextrose instead of sugar.

1 1/2 cups standard flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 large bananas, mashed
Half cup frozen raspberries
1 cup dextrose
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 175°C. Coat muffin pans with non stick spray, or use paper liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. Combine bananas, Dextrose, egg, frozen raspberries and melted butter in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture, until just combined and moistened. Scoop into muffin pans.

Bake mini muffins for 10 to 15 minutes, and large muffins for 20 to 25 minutes.
Dextrose browns faster so keep an eye on the muffins – they probably need to be covered at the last.
