Chocolate Banana Muffins
Half an hour from deciding you want muffins, you can be pulling these warm from the oven. Best part? You don't even need to drag out the hand mixer for these-a wooden spoon will do nicely.
You Will Need:
1 3/4 cups AP flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 beaten egg
3/4 cup whole milk
1/3 cup mild flavoured cooking oil (I used sunflower)
1 cup cut-up chunks of banana
1/2-3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
Coarse sugar for toping
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with paper wrappers (I got 12 generously sized muffins)
Mix the dry ingredients together. In another bowl, beat together the milk, oil and egg. Add to the dry ingredients and mix without over-mixing-just make sure to moisten all the dry ingredients. Fold in the chips and bananas. Pour into cups and top each generously with a pinch or two of coarse sugar crystals.
Bake 20-25 minutes or until done. The muffins will be quite brown.
