Using overripe bananas has become a Sunday tradition. On a Friday I will stop at my local fruit and vege shop and grab the overripe banana trays that are only $1 ready to bake with them on Sunday. I vary between loafs and muffins and this week I found a packet of white chocolate buttons in the cupboard so decided to include them in this easy one bowl hand mix muffin recipes.
2 Overripe Medium Bananas, mashed
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Raw Sugar
1/2 Cup Grape seed Oil (or any other unflavored oil like sunflower)
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 3/4 Cups Plain Flour
1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
2 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Bicarbonate Soda
2 Tbs Black Chia Seeds (optional)
1 Cup White Chocolate Buttons, reserve 12 for the tops of the muffins
LET’S PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
- Place the first six ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix well.
- Add the remaining ingredients and continue to mix until just combined.
- Spoon into a lined 12 hole muffin tray and then place the white chocolate buttons on top of each.
- Place into a 180 degree Celsius oven to bake for 15 minutes or until they bounce back when touched.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes in the tray before removing and allowing to cool completely on a cooling rack.
Store in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 5 days.
Freezer friendly – wrap in cling wrap and freeze for up to 3 months. Alternatively they can be placed in a freezer safe container and frozen unwrapped in that.
