Apple banana and chocolate muffins


Happy birthday Foodolicious pictured! Yipeeee my blog turned 2.

2 years of blissful, happy, sad, joy, laughter, achievements, disappointments, madness and so much more. So many emotions bundled up in this 2 years. Every post has so many memories and every picture has a story to cherish. And I don’t think I could have got this far without your kind words, good wishes and love. Thank you for being there and looking forward to sharing more food, memories and stories.

I call them ABC muffins! Baked these for breakfast on the weekend, and works well as a after-school snack / tea-time accompaniment. They are moist and very filling.

You need –

  • Ripe bananas – 2
  • Apple – 1, peeled and pureed
  • Light brown sugar – 100 grams
  • All purpose flour – 1.5 cups
  • Coco powder – 3 tablespoon
  • Baking soda – ¾ teaspoon
  • Baking powder – ¾ teaspoon
  • Salt – ¼ teaspoon
  • Eggs – 2 @ room temperature
  • Chocolate chips – 1/3 cups or as required

Pre-heat the oven to 200 C. Line the muffin tin with 8-10 paper liners.  In a bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, soda, coco powder and salt. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl mash the bananas well and add the apple puree. Beat the mixture on medium low speed and gradually add the the oil followed by the sugar. Beat well till combined. Now add the egg one at a time and beating well after each addition.

Add the flour to the banana mixture and beat gently till everything is well combined. Spoon the mixture into the prepared linners till ¾ full. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top and bake for 15-20 minutes or till the toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle of the muffins.

Cool the muffins for 10 minutes in tin and then on a wire rack.

  1. Congrats on the bloggie birthday. Painting like cupcakes soo pretty.If the blog was a baby it would already start saying the alphabet by now so its an apt cupcake for the occasion Rekha 🙂

  2. You mention adding oil to the wet ingredients but I didn’t see how much oil to add. I’ve made these twice now, first with approximately 1/4 canola oil, and this time with 3tbsp. Everyone loved both batches. But how much oil is supposed to go in. Thank you for sharing.
