Want to whip up a “not too naughty” treat in less than half an hour after dinner? Look no further than these tasty little banana, coconut and dark chocolate muffins. The banana gives the muffins a real ‘mositness’ and with the crunchy coconut on top and melted chocolate inside it’s the perfect accompaniment. These are perfect for a morning tea snack or a sweet treat after dinner with a good hot cuppa.
- 1 1/4 cups plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
- 3/4 cup shredded coconut
- dark chocolate chunks
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line muffin cups with cupcake liners.
Stir together flour and baking powder. Whisk together bananas, butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and 1/2 cup coconut in a large bowl until combined well, then fold in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate.
Divide batter among 10 lined muffin cups and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup coconut. Bake for about 20 minutes or until muffins are puffed and golden. Transfer muffins to a rack and cool slightly.
Enjoy with a pot of delicious Sencha green tea!
Happy baking, love Jem x
