Banana & Chocolate chip muffins

Had a lovely afternoon making these Banana & Chocolate chip muffins with Abi and Jessica:

I’d used the last 2 eggs at lunchtime so when we decided to do some cooking I searched for recipes without eggs – turns out that the best thing to search for is eggless recipes. I then found the recipe for these muffins which after I made a couple of alterations to, we had all the ingredients for. We all had fun making them and they were delicious, although unfortunately I decided to only make half the quantities so we only had 6! The recipe with my alterations is below (makes 6)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • ¼ cup oats
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 6 squares of chocolate (chopped up)
  • 2 bananas (mashed)
  • ¼ cup sunflower oil
  • 2 tblsp water

Directions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190°C
  2. Mix the mashed banana, oil and sugar and water together to create a smooth paste.
  3. Mix in the flour, oats and chocolate pieces.
  4. Spoon carefully into muffin cases, about 3 tsp of mixture per case
  5. Cook for 20 minutes.

5 Minute Mug Brownie

A while back I saw that Pete had posted this on twitter, and we decided it was worth a try – since then I can’t remember how many times we’ve made them as it’s so simple and tastes good!  Just posting it on my blog so it’s easier to find in the future!

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • A splash of vanilla extract (we didn’t use this)
  • 3 tablespoons of chocolate chips (optional)

Directions

  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a large coffee mug
  2. Add the egg and mix together
  3. Pour in the milk and oil, mix
  4. Add the chocolate chips and vanilla extract (if using)
  5. Microwave for 3 minutes
  6. Allow to cool and tip onto a plate
