Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

If you haven't checked out Sweet + Simple Bakes, it's a great new site that is being hosted by Rosie and Maria. It promotes baking for amateurs and gets us to make the most delicious, simple bakes every month. Kinda like a Daring Bakers for those who have never baked, don't bake much or those professional bakers who just want to get back to the basics.

For this month's Sweet + Simple Bakes challenge, we got to make fabulous Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. I've made muffins before, but this was so good and so simple. The banana added a moistness to the muffins, which we loved.


Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
(recipe from Sweet + Simple Bakes)

3 very ripe Bananas
1/2 cup vegetable Oil
2 Eggs
1 3/4 cups All-purpose Flour
3/4 cup Caster Sugar
½ tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
150g (little more than 3/4 cup) Chocolate Chips

Preheat the oven to 200ÂșC and line a muffin tin with muffin papers.

Mash the bananas and set aside. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs in with the oil.

Put the flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder into a large bowl and mix in the beaten-egg-and-oil mixture, followed by the mashed bananas.

Fold in the chocolate chips, then spoon equal quantities into the prepared muffin tin and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.


It was delicious. As always. Thanks again, Rosie and Maria.
