These Chocolate Chip and Banana Muffins are the perfect mix of naughty and nice! I am not really a fan of bananas and the kids don't eat them much anymore (especially Bean with her SED) so I found this recipe in the hope of sneaking some extra bananas into them.
Bananas of course contain lots of different beneficial nutrients including potassium, vitamin B6 and vitamin C among others. You can find out more about the health benefits of bananas if you do some research, but safe to say I think it's important to add them into our diet any way in which we can, even if you have to sneak them into a cake!
The banana taste is really quite mild and is set of nicely by the chocolate chips so I was more than happy to eat them - as were the girls!! I make them in cupcake size rather than muffins which are better for the children (and I just eat two!).
Makes 12 muffins or 24 cupcakes
225g plain flour
100g caster sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
100g packet milk chocolate chips
4 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 tablespoon milk
250g mashed bananas (2 large bananas)
Mix together the dry ingredients (not chocolate chips) in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Mix together the wet ingredients, including the egg and slowly add to the dry ingredients. It will form a lumpy batter. Mix in the chocolate chips and spoon into muffin / cake cases until ¾ full.
Bake on 200 degrees for 15 minutes if using cake size and 20/25 if making larger muffin size. Cool on a wire rack.
