Hope you’re having a good weekend 🙂 A few days ago I baked these super quick and simple muffins with chocolate pieces and bananas using a recipe from the “Cupcakes and Mini Cakes” book I have. They turned out quite similar to the banana muffins I had made in August 2017.
Chocolate Banana Muffins
- 190 gr. all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 100 gr. brown sugar
- 45 gr. butter, melted
- 1 beaten medium egg
- 2 mashed bananas
- 85 ml. buttermilk
- 50 gr. chopped milk chocolate*
*honestly I’d advise you to simply use chocolate chip pieces, it’ll be easier 😀
This is one of those recipes where you just have to mix everything in one go. First deal with the initial preparations: mash your two peeled bananas, beat your egg in one small bowl, pre-heat your oven to 200°C/400°F, and butter the bottoms of 10-12 muffin holders. Then move on to the actual dough; sift the dry ingredients into one bowl and mix the butter, egg, bananas, and milk in another. Add the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ones and mix until it’s all well-incorporated, if you overmix then your muffins can come out dense and dry. Bake for 20-30 minutes; mine took exactly 20 minutes, so just check by inserting a toothpick into the middle of your muffins.
They have such a lovely aroma of bananas, in fact they might even remind you of banana bread. The chocolate is just an added bonus of sweetness, though I’m pretty sure you can skip it if you’d rather not have it in your muffins. All in all, the muffins are soft and perfect for breakfast or as an afternoon tea snack.
Until next time!
