Banana and Chocolate Chip Mini Loaves or Muffins



I made these with 3 bananas which were looking rather spotty and over-ripe in the fruit bowl.  As a change from muffins I decided to bake the mixture in disposable mini loaf liners.  They went down very well with a cuppa after the school run this evening.  

These mini loaves would be fab for cake stalls, coffee mornings or a Mother's Day treat.  I might just bake more and give them to friends as a surprise treat.

Banana and Chocolate Chip Mini Loaves or Muffins

3 ripe bananas, mashed
¾ cup sugar
1/3 cup oil
1 free range egg
1 tsp vanilla paste or extract
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tblsp milk
1½ cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
100g packet of chocolate drops

Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan.

In a bowl mash the banana then add the oil, egg , sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and milk.  Stir well to combine.  Sift the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda over the top of the wet ingredients.  Mix everything gently until combined.  

Spoon into muffin cases or mini loaf cases.  This recipe made 10 mini loaves, and usually makes 12 muffins.  Bake at 180C/160C Fan for 20 - 25 minutes.
