Every weeks I buy fresh fruit and bananas are always present in the fruit basket. It’s a very versatile fruit and easy to cook, and if you adding chocolate and a little sugar, make them irresistible. —Emotion of Taste

In This Recipe
Preheat the oven to 180ºC (160ºC fan oven) mark 4. Line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper muffin cases.
Sift the flour, bicarbonate de soda and slat into a large mixing bowl and put to one side.
Peel the bananas and mash with a fork in a bowl. Add the sugar, egg, milk and melted and cooled butter and mix until well combined.
Add this to the flour mixture, with the chocolate chips. Stir gently, using only a few strokes, until the flour is only just incorporated – do not over-mix. The mixture should be lumpy. Spoon the mixture equally into the paper cases, half-filling them, and sprinkle with brown sugar and chocolate chips.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are well risen and golden. Transfer to a wire rack and leave cool.
