Banana Choc Chunk Muffins

My sis in law called to ask if my kids are in today. If they are, then her two daughters would be coming over to play with my children.

I have no plans for today so I said that they may come over.

Hehe .. as usual, being the nice aunt, I decided to bake something for my nieces .. and it has got to be fuss free .. and what is fuss free for me?? .. Let me spell it out for you .. M-U-F-F-I-N-S! Banana Chocolate Chunk Muffins!

Wassup with me and muffins .. ahh .. wat the heck! Told you .. I wanted to make something which is fuss free!

Using the basic banana muffin recipe that I have, I added choc chunks to it.


1 1/2 cup self raising flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 large bananas, mashed
1 cup chocolate chunks + more for sprinkling


Preheat oven to 175C.
Lay paper cases in muffin tins.
A - In a large bowl, put flour in.
B - Combine sugar, egg, oil, milk and mashed bananas.
Incorporate B into A and using a metal fork, fold in the flour and choc chunks till just moistened.
Spoon mixture into the muffin tins and then bake for about 25 - 30 mins or until a pick/skewer inserted comes out clean.
Stand muffins for about 5 mins before turning out to cool on a wire tray.

While the 2nd batch of muffins were in the oven, the kids arrived and the first remarks were "Wahhhh .. smell nice!"

I just took the first batch of muffins out of the oven and the kids just dived in .. they love it .. really really lurveeeeeeeeeeeee it!

I too, could not resist them .. banana-ey, chocolat-ey and best of all super moist!

The muffins were ready in an hour and disappeared quite fast too .. hehehe. I managed to save 5 pcs for sis in law who couldnt make it to my house!

Sis in law, Lily - Speedy recovery from your Lasik surgery .. I packed some muffins for you .. hope you enjoy them! .. See, I never forget you!
