1 ½ cups Exclusively Fruit Strawberry Compote buy strawberry compote

1 mashed banana

1 ¾ cups plain flour

4 tbsp butter

3 tbsp maple syrup

Splash of milk

1 tsp vanilla essence

2 eggs

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Strain any excess juice from your Exclusively Fruit Strawberry Compote and set aside. **TIP – use the juice to add to your favourite gin based cocktail – delicious!! Toss the strawberry compote gently in ¼ cup plain flour – this will ensure the strawberries are evenly dispersed in the muffins and that they don’t all sink to the bottom! Set aside the strawberries for later.
  3. Melt the butter, and add to the mashed banana, maple syrup, milk, vanilla essence and eggs. Whisk until combined.
  4. Sieve the baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and plain flour into the wet ingredients.
  5. Gently use a wooden spoon to mix the ingredients until combined – do not overmix!
  6. Fold the strawberry compote into the muffin batter.
  7. Scoop into muffin cases and bake for 16-18 minutes or until a metal skewer inserted into the centre of the muffins comes out clean.
  8. Once baked, place on a paper towel to absorb excess moisture and store in an airtight container. These can also be frozen once cooled!
