Blake’s Sunday Bakes – Banana Muffins with Chocolate Chips
Perfect Banana Muffins
Sundays at MammaChef’s house in Jozi are very often for golf, for half the family and baking for the other half. Then of course, lunch and eating of the bakes comes after that! My baking definitely needs all the practice it can get but I must say that Blake absolutely loves baking. These banana muffins are just so easy and perfectly moist, even I can’t mess them up!
It’s such a fun thing for us to do together and we both enjoy every second of it. We always have to bake a few extra because the boys always want to take some to school for their teachers and their friends.
Baking has therefore become all about sharing the love!
Keeping it healthy(ish)
The original recipe comes from somewhere on Pinterest but I changed it quite a bit, as I usually do. I used Stoneground Wholemeal flour from Champagne Valley which is GMO free, full of it’s natural vitamins and minerals and unbleached.
They also have loads of delicious recipes on their website, by the way!
I received the flour as an extra surprise in my Munching Mongoose organic produce box for the week and I ended up using it for quite a few different things. Awesome products just give a different taste!
- 4 ripe bananas
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- pinch salt
- 2/3 cups sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1/3 cup butter
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
Spray muffin tins well with baking spray. Peel bananas, break into smaller pieces and mash in a bowl together with the butter, using a fork. Blend until the mixture is creamy and smooth, not too lumpy.
Add the egg, sugar and vanilla and combine. Stir in salt and baking soda. Next, add the flour and chocolate chips, mixing until just combined (not too much mixing).
Divide into muffin tin and bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when pierced into the muffin.
Moist, delicious and perfect for a snack or even for a sweet breakfast. You could also substitute the chocolate chips with berries or whatever else your heart desires!
