Before you decide to throw out those overly ripe bananas that have just been sitting there, I recommend putting them to good use...in muffins!
With the addition of some good chocolate chips and a little vanilla essence, you can produce some delicious muffins that will have people coming back for seconds!
This is a great recipe to get the kids or grand kids to help with, as it's so easy...and let's face it, kids love to squish and mix things together. It always makes for a fun time in our house, and the kids get a real kick out of eating something they helped to make.
You can put them in school lunches for the kids, send them to work with your partner, make a batch to cheer up a friend or neighbour...or to just indulge all by yourself watching a late night movie.
2 cups of Self Raising Flour
1/2 cups of Caster Sugar
1/2 cups of good quality Chocolate Chips
100 grams of Melted Butter
1 cup of Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
2-3 Ripe Bananas
Pre heat your oven to 200c and grease a muffin tray, or you can place patty pans in the muffin tray.
Using a large bowl, mix together the flour, caster sugar and chocolate chips.
Melt the butter in a small pan on the stove, or in the microwave.
In another bowl and using a fork, mash the bananas until smooth. Now pour in the milk, melted butter, egg and vanilla essence and mix together.
Now pour the banana mixture into the bowl containing the flour, sugar and choc chips, and gently mix together.
Spoon the mix into the prepared muffin tray and bake for 10 - 12 minutes, or until a metal skewer comes out clean.
Place onto a cooling rack, or eat them warm straight from the oven.
