Step 1 - Pre-heat the oven to 160C/320F.
Step 2 - Line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper muffin cases.
Step 3 - Tip 300g of self-rising flour and 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl.
Step 4 - Add 100g of light muscovado sugar and 50g of porridge oats into the bowl and mix. Make a well in the centre.
Step 5 - In a separate bowl, mash 2 medium ripe bananas until nearly smooth before stirring in a 284ml carton of buttermilk, 5 tablespoons of light olive oil and 2 egg whites until evenly combined.
Step 6 - Pour the liquid mixture into the well and stir quickly and sparingly with a wooden spoon. This mix will look lumpy and may have a few small bits of flour still visible, but do not be tempted to overmix.
Step 7 - Tip in a 150g punnet of blueberries and give the mixture just one more stir.
Step 8 - Divide the mixture between the muffin cases. Sprinkle over the tops with 1 tablespoon of light muscovado sugar and 1 tablespoon of porridge oats.
Step 9 - Bake for approximately 20 minutes until the muffins have risen and turned a dark golden colour.
Step 10 - Cool for 5 minutes in the tray before lifting out to cool completely.
