5-Star Choc Chip Banana Muffins for Brekky

If I want it, I bake it.

So I prepared most of the ingredients the night before so I just need a bit of preparation time in the morning. Or else, everyone will be cranky hungry.

There is nothing like freshly baked muffins for breakfast with hot coffee. Don’t you agree?

Pleasurable cure for my winter blues.

Adapted this 5-star rated recipe from taste.com:

60 g butter
2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup (200 g) dark chocolate bits

Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a medium muffin tray (12 sections) with paper cases. Melt butter in a heat-proof bowl in the microwave. Set aside to cool slightly.
Sift flour into a mixing bowl. Stir in sugar. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients.
Using a whisk, lightly beat milk, eggs and butter in a bowl. Add to dry ingredients, along with mashed banana.

Using a wooden spoon, gently mix ingredients until just combined. Stir in chocolate bits. Don’t beat the mixture or the muffins will be tough.

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until firm on top when lightly touched. Leave in the tray for 3 minutes. Transfer the muffins to a rack to cool.
