A choc chip muffin that kids love, but packed full of energy to keep them going with bananas and weet-bix at school or afternoon activities.


Ingredients (serves 12)

  • 3 bananas, large, ripe
  • 4 Weet-Bix (or other wheat cereal biscuit)
  • 3/4 cup low fat milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbspn margarine or softened butter
  • 1 1/2 cups self raising flour, sifted (could use wholemeal self raising if prefer)
  • 1-2 tbspn Honey (depending on personal taste)
  • 1 cup NESTLE BAKERS' CHOICE Choc Bits, Milk or Dark

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Grease 12 cup muffin tray.
  2. Mash bananas in a large bowl, crumble in the Weet-Bix and add the milk. Stir and allow to absorb and soften for 10 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and margarine. Add to banana mixture.
  4. Sift flour over the wet mix and stir until just combined. Add 1-2 tablespoons of honey (according to personal taste) and 1 cup NESTLE BAKERS' CHOICE Choc Bits and stir through.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden on top, or skewer comes out clean.

Notes... Originally found this recipe online a few years ago, we felt it was sweet enough with the choc chips and banana, so replaced the sugar with 1 tablespoon of honey. We prefer to also use Wholemeal Self Raising Flour and Low Fat milk.

  • I love the idea of these and will definitely try them. I make a great banana muffin, but am happy to try another way… and my son will love the added choc chips.

  • What a pity to put unhealthy Nestle Bakers Choice choc bits in this for the rest quite healthy recipe. I would use raw chocolate nibs and also replace the honey with coconut palm syrup or yacon syrup.
