Banana and choc chip muffins
Hands up who has too many brown bananas in their fruit bowl?
Here’s a simple recipe to use those old bananas and turn them into something tasty. I found it on best recipes.com.au .
Ingredients: 4 over ripe bananas (use more if you have them)
60 g melted butter, 3/4 cup of sugar, 100 g butter, 1 egg, 2 tablespoons of milk, one teaspoon of bicarb soda, one teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 and 1/2 cups of plain flour, 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
Method: Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius (170 fan forced) Melt butter and set aside to cool. Mash bananas in a bowl, and add the sugar, mixing to combine. Next in a seperate bowl lightly beat together the cooled butter, egg and milk. Add this mixture into the banana bowl. Time now to sift the flour, bicarb soda, baking powder and salt into the mixture. And yes, you guessed it- gently mix it all together! Now add the chocolate chips ( I added one cup of them as I love chocolate!)
Dollop out the muffin mixture into patty cases in a muffin tray. Two generous spoonfuls in each case made around 15 muffins in total. And bake for 15- 20 minutes. I found 15 minutes was enough with my super hot oven.
Success rate: 2 out of 4 family members love these muffins. Although I wanted to put them in my daughters lunchboxes- they weren’t interested and wanted to stick with Tiny Teddies and BBQ Shapes! So Peter and I munch the muffins for our brekkie and morning tea!
Would love to know your quick, simple, sugar treats!
