Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Muffins (healthier)

Do I buy bananas just to make banana bread recipes? Most definitely. Sometimes, you can find farm shops or supermarkets that are giving away or selling bananas at a reduced price because they are 'too ripe or bruised'. These are perfect for banana baking.


There is just something magical about banana bread, peanut butter and chocolate together. 9/10 times, when I'm baking with bananas, it will be this combo.


The icing is as simple and 100% smooth pb and a little maple syrup. The chocolate chips are a wonderful quality from Callebaut. The banana bread is reduced sugar and still absolutely delicious. Soft, fluffy, moist and everything else you want from a banana bake.

2 ripe bananas

1 large egg

1/3 cup brown sugar (or coconut sugar)

1/2 cup yogurt (I used Soya)

1tsp baking soda

1cup dark chocolate chips


icing

2tbs smooth peanut butter

1tbs maple syrup



M E T H O D

- preheat the oven to 220c. This may seem hot, but trust me on this one.

- In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Then whisk in the egg, sugar, syrup, yogurt and oil.

- Gently whisk in the flour and baking soda until all combined.

- Fold through the chocolate chips and scoop into large muffin cases.

- Bake in the hot oven for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 170c for 25 minutes. (If you're baking the smaller muffins, you can reduce the heat for a further 15 minutes). To double check that the muffins are baked, insert a skewer and do the 'does it come out clean' trick.
