CHUNKY MONKEY MUFFINS

The summer heat seems to turn my bowl of banana's to mush so much quicker and having a bunch of quick, tasty recipes to use up the darkened beauties is pretty much essential.  This is a great banana use up recipe and it was made even better by a dollar store purchase of monster cocktail sticks- added, once cooked, by a very happy Alfie! 
 


CHUNKY MONKEY MUFFINS

INGREDIENTS


  • 280g All purpose Flour
  • 1tsp. baking powder
  • 1tsp. bicarbonate of soda
  • 0.5 tsp. salt
  • 3 well ripened bananas (about 450g in total)
  • 110g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 70ml milk
  • 90ml canola oil
  • 70g semi sweet chocolate chips

METHOD

  1. Prepare the muffin tin with cases and preheat oven to 375F / 190 C.
  2. In a large bowl place the dry ingredients and chocolate chips, mix.
  3. In another bowl/large jug add the milk, oil, egg and peeled bananas and using a balloon whisk mash and mix together. 
  4. Pour the wet into the dry and mix till only just combined- over-mixing makes for heavy muffins- lumps are allowed! 
  5. Spoon the mix into the prepared cases in the tin (I use a lever ice cream scoop- the perfect size and the level drops the mix into the cases).
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes till golden brown and they spring back when pressed lightly.
  7. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy.

A life without lemons is like swimming in the nude! You can do it, but it just feels wrong.

A Life Without Lemons started when I moved from the UK to Edmonton in Canada. I blog about fabulous food, family and my long standing love affair with gin and tonic!

Very glad to have you come along for the ride- is it gin o clock yet?
