About Us

Hillbrush has been manufacturing cleaning equipment in Mere, Wiltshire, since 1922. In April 2017 we launched our visitor centre, Visit Hillbrush, incorporating our gift shop of cleaning and personal grooming products, our amazing locally sourced restaurant, and our interactive brushmaking museum. We are the perfect venue for families looking for activities in Wiltshire, or travellers looking for a comfortable, friendly stop. We are just a two minute drive from the A303 Mere and Stourhead exit. We offer electric car charging, loyalty cards and gift vouchers. We are family friendly, with activity booklets available for children. Dogs are more than welcome on our beautiful south-facing terrace. We are open on Friday evenings, with a dedicated specials menu every week.

Recipe: Banana Muffins (Gluten-Free)

This Banana Muffin recipe is the ideal bake if you have a few bananas that are just over ripe and you don’t fancy eating them as they are. We are all about not wasting food!

Prep time: approx. 15 mins
Cook time: approx. 25 mins

Ingredients

4 Bananas (or 3 Large Bananas), Mashed
4 Eggs
1/2 Cup Almond Butter
2 tbsp Coconut Oil, Melted
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
2 tsp Cinnamon
(Optional: 1/2 tsp Nutmeg)
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
1/4 tsp Sea Salt

Method

Preheat oven to 175 degrees and prepare your muffin tin with muffin cases. In a large bowl, add bananas, eggs, almond butter, coconut oil and vanilla extract, and mix using an electric hand whisk. Add the coconut flour, cinnamon, (nutmeg), baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt and blend the entire mixture thoroughly. Distribute batter evenly into your muffin cases, filling each one around 1/3 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out of the muffins clean. Serve warm, or store in the fridge in a resealable bag or tub.

Enjoy! Let us know what you think of these muffins if you try them by posting a comment on our blog or on our Facebook page.
