We eat these muffins a lot. Sometimes we eat them everyday for breakfast for weeks on end. This is definitely not like eating cake for breakfast (well it is, but I don’t care). These are very healthy muffins as they are full of spelt and wholemeal flour, bananas, walnuts, eggs and dark dark chocolate – they have a tiny bit of sugar and oil in, but I might experiment with reducing this, or maybe not as I don’t think vegetable oil is bad for you although I do agree sugar isn’t the best thing. Once my bees are producing I will use honey instead.
I make them in bulk when I have forgotten about our bananas and they are very ripe. You can freeze the muffins (and bananas) – they freeze very well.
Spelt flour, banana, walnut and chocolate chip muffins: 125g of spelt flour, 125g of wholemeal flour, 125m l of vegetable oil, 4 or 5 bananas (you can’t have too much banana) 100g sugar, 2 eggs, handful of walnuts, handful (or two) of Montezuma dark chocolate buttons, 1/2tsp bicarbonate of soda, 1tsp of baking powder. Mash the bananas. Beat the eggs with the oil. Put the flour, sugar and raising agents in a bowl. Mix in the oil and egg. Add in the banana. Add in handful of nuts and chocolate.
You could chop the chocolate up but I like finding giant bits of chocolate in my muffin. Put into muffins cases and cook for 20 minutes at 180C
Seriously, this takes about 10 minutes to make – they are fantastic and a great way to start the day!
