Rich, chocolatey muffins packed with chocolate chips and drizzled with even more chocolate. Don't be fooled though, the banana shines through making these Chocolate & Banana Muffins even tastier!
Preheat the oven to 160ºC (fan assisted 180ºC non fan). Add 12 muffin liners to a muffin tin and set aside
Beat the margarine and sugar together for at least 5 minutes until pale and fluffy
Add the eggs and mix again
Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt and stir into the butter until the flour is nearly combined, but not quite
Mash the bananas roughly with a fork and add them to the mix along with the chocolate chips and milk. Mix until combined
Divide the mix between the 12 muffin liners and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until a cocktail stick comes out clean
Allow to cool for around 10 minutes before removing from the tin and leaving to cool on a wire rack
Once cooled, melt the chocolate in the microwave. I do this by melting the chocolate for short bursts of time and stirring in between each burst
Add as much of the oil as you need to create a drizzling texture. Drizzle the chocolate over the top of each muffin
Dark, black bananas work best for this recipe.
