Chocolate and Banana Muffins with a Surprise Center 

Hey everyone!

I decided to bake these on a Saturday afternoon because I realised I had some bananas that were too ripe to eat on its own. Thought I’d use it to bake something without wasting it. These muffins are so easy to make and yummy. All the ingredients can be found in your kitchen because they are common household ingredients. It’s light and fluffy with a gooey center. The chocolate to banana ratio is perfect. These muffins have a chocolate surprise which makes them even better! Anyways on to the recipe!

  4. 125ml vegetable oil or any flavourless oil
  5. 2 eggs
  6. 3 ripe bananas
  7. 1 tsp vanilla
