Mix the flour, sugar and oats together in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Mix the banana, yoghurt, egg and oil together in a separate bowl. Pour into the well all the dry ingredients and mix in until just combined. Add the raspberries and fold in only twice.

Spoon the mixture into a lined muffin pan and bake for 15-18 minutes. The tops of the muffins must spring back slightly when pressed. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the pan.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
