Banana chocolate walnut muffins

Once again, I find myself with overripe bananas on hand - not a problem as they are perfect for baking with. This is a varation of the banana chocolate chip muffin recipe from the Baking for Blokes recipe book. I altered the quantity of chocolate chips and substituted in some chopped walnuts instead to make up one combined cup of goodies to add. It is a smaller, wetter muffin recipe than the ones I usually bake with and the Weetbix and walnuts gave some extra texture. Also, it is unusual in that the wet mix is added to dry instead of the other way around.

Banana chocolate chip (and walnut) muffins

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 Weetbix, crushed
  • 1 egg
  • 100 g butter, melted
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 large or 2 smallish bananas, mashed
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder and sugar into a bowl.
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips and crushed Weetbix, then make a well in the middle of the mixture.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and stir in the melted butter along with the milk, then pour into the well in the dry ingredients.
  5. Add the mashed banana, then stir briefly - just enough so that it's mushed together.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
