Banana muffins with Easter chocolate!


April 14, 2013 by thepolishedbutton

As we’ve been away, we had a surfeit of black bananas and milk on the turn. And there is only one way to use those items up – MUFFINS hurrah!!

As our planned trip to the year’s first carboot was cancelled (waterlogged field!) what better thing to do on a sunny Sunday morning than a spot of baking?
I found this nice easy recipe here so the toddler and I donned our aprons and got mushing up those bananas.

Despite the toddler only being 2, she ended up with a ton of chocolate at Easter – far more than she (or I) could handle. She loved the novelty of unwrapping the eggs, but only had a bite or two, so the rest of the pieces of broken chocolate went into a big jar, to be eeked out a suitable intervals!


I thought a handful of broken chocolate bits could surely enhance these humble muffins, so in they went! I sprinkled a handful of oats on the top once they were in the cases for a bit of texture too.


20 mins in the oven later, here they are – all warm and luscious!
I can highly recommend these with a big coffee as a way to start a Sunday!!

    BTW, I wanted to let you know that I have nominated you for a LIebster Award! Hope you don’t have one already!? In order to take part, there are a few rules, one of which is that you need to answer some questions set by me. The details are here:

  2. Argh! I make banana cake all the time, why have I never added chocolate before?!? Will be rectifying this one soon 🙂
