  1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Mix together the polenta, couscous, dark brown soft sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a bowl. Stir in the dried mango.
  2. Whisk together the mashed bananas, eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and buttermilk. Stir the polenta mixture into the banana mixture and let the batter rest until the couscous absorbs some of the moisture, about 5 minutes. Spoon the batter into ungreased muffin tins, filling them 2/3 full.
