Choc chip banana muffins

I have been craving choc chip banana muffins for over a week. I don’t quite know why, but there you have it. I bought up big at the banana stall at the farmers market last week and finally got around to making them. I think they’re great; they totally hit the spot. I used good quality chocolate (my favourite, Fair Trade, Green & Black’s) good vanilla and bananas of varying ripeness. I mashed the super ripe bananas almost to a puree and let the firmer ones in big chunks. This way you get the best of both worlds, you get the chunks of banana through your muffin, as well as the general sweetness and moisture of the banana throughout.

Makes 24 large muffins

2 cups mashed banana
1 cup raw sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
100 grams chocolate
½ cup melted butter
3 cups self-raising flour

Preheat the oven to 180oC.

Mix together the mashed banana and egg. Add the sugar, vanilla, and butter. Sift over the flour and fold through with the chocolate until just combined.

Grease or line your muffin pan. Fill the muffin cavities so the mixture is mounded a little over the height of the cavity.

Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes or until golden on top and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Smaller muffins will take less time to cook.
