Banana Choc Chip Muffins


Bananas are my sons favourite snack to take to nursery at the moment (complete with a face drawn on them!), which usually means that there are a few very ripe bananas lurking in the fruit bowl towards the end of the week.

This is a simple recipe to use them up, and to be honest, the riper the banana, the less work there is to be done in making it!

  • 100g very soft unsalted butter
  • 100g Caster Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g Self Raising Flour
  • 1tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 very ripe small Bananas (or 2 large ones)
  • Chocolate Chips to taste – I used approx 75g of Milk Chocolate chips here

In a bowl place the butter and sugar.

Mix together until light and fluffy.

Add one egg and a tablespoon of flour.

Mix to combine, and repeat with the second egg.

As you can see, my bananas were very ripe!

Add in the bananas, vanilla and flour.

Mix until creamy. This is really easy if the bananas are really ripe!

Add in the chocolate chips.

And stir to combine everything.I used an icecream scoop to portion out the batter into cases. This made 10 muffins, which I bake at 180degrees for about 25 mins.

Allow to cool.

A perfect mid-morning snack!

    I make some using an almost identical recipe. You can also freeze banana’s that are past their best, if you don’t have time to make the muffins straight away. Just pop in the freezer, skin will go black but inside they’re fine to use. Just defrost for about half an hour, hardly any mashing required! :o )
