My kids love, love, love to help in the kitchen. Usually they get shooed away, but when it comes to baking, I try to make it a family affair.
Over the weekend, the kids and I made these yummy banana and chocolate chip muffins from a Donna Hay recipe, which my MIL found in the weekender magazine. I did tweak it a little (i.e. reduced the amount of sugar & chocolate).
They’re super easy to make and perfect for the school lunch box.
Banana Choc Chip Muffins
2 cups of plain flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup caster sugar
75 grams butter
3/4 cup of milk
2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
2 mashed bananas
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl.
Melt the butter in the microwave (approximately 30-45 seconds)
Add the caster sugar, eggs, butter, milk and vanilla.
Mix until combined.
Fold through the mashed bananas and chocolate chips.
Place 12 muffin cases into a muffin tin and spoon the mixture into the cases.
Cook for 20-25 minutes.
Cool on a wire wrack.
I hope you enjoy making (and eating) them as much as we did!!
