Banana Milk Chocolate & Peanut Butter Morsel Muffins

Do you have ripe bananas in your fruit bowl? Then look no further! These banana muffins are simply delicious and one of the easiest recipes, which is why I make them time and time again. I know I’ve blogged about them before but I’m not going to apologise for blogging them again. I love these muffins and so do my boys. They are perfect for breakfast on the run, which is really why I made them. My son didn’t have breakfast this morning; apparently he didn’t have time and was running late for college. As a mother I just hate the thought of him not having had breakfast, which is the most important meal of the day! So tomorrow he has no excuses but I doubt that he will have an issue grabbing a few of these to munch on the way to college, I’ve added swirled milk chocolate & peanut butter morsels, so try stopping him!

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

3 very ripe bananas
125ml vegetable oil
2 eggs
250g plain flour
100g caster sugar
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
150g dark/milk chocolate (white chocolate, butterscotch chips or peanut butter morsels)

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/180ºC fan oven/gas mark 6 and line a 12-bun muffin tin with muffin papers.
Mash the bananas and set aside for a moment.Pour the oil into a jug and beat in the eggs.
Put the flour, sugar, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder into a large bowl and mix in the beaten-egg-and-oil mixture, followed by the mashed bananas.
Fold in the chocolate morsels, then place equal quantities in the prepared muffin tin and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
