Banana, Honey and Chocolate Chunk Muffins

These are probably one of the easiest things to make, and if you omit the chocolate then they are pretty cheap too! I really like to eat them as breakfast muffins althought they are just as good at any other time of day. They keep well for a few days too, if you can manage not to eat them!


90g clear honey (3 tablespoons)
30g butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large or three small very ripe bananas
150g plain flour
1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
1 level teaspoon of cinamon
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
50g dark or milk chocolate (whichever you prefer)


Melt the butter, honey and vanilla extract in a pan then leave it for a couple of minutes to cool slightly. Mash the bananas in a large bowl (don't mash it to a pulp it's better with a few lumps of banana in it) and pour in the melted butter mixture. Next measure all the dry ingredients together and sieve them into the banana mix. Chop the chocolate into small chunk and mix all the ingredients together, being careful not to over mix.
Divide into 10 muffin cases and put into a preheated oven at 180C/Gas mark 5 for 20 minutes until golden brown on top.
