How to make chocolate banana muffins
Before making a start on the muffin batter, first preheat the oven to 180c and line 2 x 6 hole muffin trays with cupcake liner.
As with all muffin recipes, the dry ingredients and wet ingredients are mixed in seperate bowls, before combining the two and mixing until just combined. This helps ensure the muffins are light and fluffy once baked.
First, add the self raising flour, sugar, cocoa powder and dark chocolate chips to a large mixing bowl. Stir until the ingredients are well combined.
Next, add the mashed banana, milk, canola or vegetable oil and the egg to another mixing bowl. Whisk using a fork until all ingredients are well combined.
Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until all ingredients are just combined.
Divide the muffin batter between the muffin tins. Bake for around 20 minutes, or until cooked through. Either wait for the muffins to cool completely, or alternatively enjoy while still warm.
