Ingredients

  • 180 g unbleached plain flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp fine sea salt
  • 350 g overripe banana, mashed (about 4 ½ medium bananas)
  • 60 g plain Greek yogurt
  • 80 ml cold-pressed rapeseed oil
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 100 g dark chocolate chunks (see notes)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220ºC and line a 12-cup muffin tray with paper or silicone liners.
  2. Whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. To another bowl, add banana, yogurt, oil, egg, and vanilla. Whisk well until fully combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and fold them together just until the flour begins to disappear. Gently fold in the chocolate chips until all the flour is combined. Do not overmix.
  5. Divide the mixture evenly between the 12 cups. The batter should just reach the top of each cavity.
  6. Bake the muffins for 5 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 190ºC and bake for a further 11-14 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean or with just a few crumbs attached.

  7. Allow the muffins to cool in the tray for 5 minutes, then remove them to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.
