Banana Walnut Choc Chip Muffins



Tonight I think I've cracked the ultimate banana muffin, filled with nommy chocolate chips and walnuts, modified from this recipe. I used dark brown sugar and buttermilk to add a little extra flavour and zing.

Dry Ingredients

2 cups self raising flour
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup choc-chips
1/4 cup walnuts

Wet Ingredients

100 grams butter, melted
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 over-ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 220 degrees Celsius. Grease 12 hole muffin tray or 1 x 6 hole Texas muffin pan.

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk them together to ensure an even blend.

In a separate bowl, mash bananas with a fork and mix together with all other wet ingredients. Then add to the dry ingredients until just combined. Pour into muffin pan.

Bake 12-15 minutes.



These muffins fulfill the magic combination of being moist, containing fruit, nuts and rich flavours without being too dense or overwhelming.

  2. Hi Kate, I just found your blog having been a very inactive user of Brisbane Local Food for the last 2 or so years. But it seems serendipitous now, seeing as my last blog post was on Banana Bread (your muffins look DIVINE), and I have done a PhD in philosophy too. Am keen to see how your year of eating continues! When did it begin? I hope it's not over already? Cheers, Angela

  3. Kate, thank you for this lovely recipe. Bananas prices in Australia are getting reasonable again so it is a great time to try some new banana recipes that kids will love!
