Banana Chocolate Muffins

It's Singapore's 49th National Day. Happy Birthday, Singapore! My good friends and our families will be celebrating this day together...first starting with a nature walk and picnic at Lower Pierce, followed by makan sessions thereafter.

I worked up early as I wanted to bring some bakes for the picnic. I decided to make this Banana Chocolate Muffins and some Oatmeal Raisin Cookies for the picnic.

My girl also joined in the fun in baking the muffins and cookies. She had a good time being my assistant baker. In addition, she also get to have the first bite of the muffin and cookies. This was what she had to say...

And by the way, my kitchen smells really AWESOME! Yeah!! :))

Banana Chocolate Muffins
recipe from Happy Home Baking
makes about 22 small muffins

275g plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 large bananas, about 450g
100g brown sugar (original recipe calls for 125g brown caster sugar)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
50ml semi-skimmed milk (I used low fat fresh milk)
75g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
50g chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 180C. Line muffin pans with paper muffin cases.

2. Sieve together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a mixing bowl. Mix in the chocolate chips. Set aside.

3. Peel the bananas and mash with a fork in a bowl. Add in brown sugar, egg, milk and melted butter. Mix until well combined.

4. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients. With a wooden spoon or a spatula, gently fold all the ingredients to form a wet batter. Stir gently, using only a few strokes and mix until the flour are incorporate into the batter. DO NOT Over mix. The batter should appear lumpy.

5. Spoon batter into paper muffin cases. Bake for 20mins until muffins turn golden brown or a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

6. Let cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or cold.
