- 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 Tbsp espresso or strong coffee (optional)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cup of flour
- Chocolate chips (I used around half cup)
- Walnut to decorate (optional)
No need for a mixer with this recipe.
Preheat the oven to 180 C. With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl.
Mix in the sugar, egg, espresso and vanilla.
Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in.
Add the flour, mix until it is just incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips and put a walnut on top of the muffin.
Pour mixture into a prepared muffin tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Check for doneness with a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin. If it comes out clean, it's done. Cool on a rack.
Makes 12 muffins.
