I swear I’m going to stop buying bananas. I bought half-a-dozen at the beginning of last week and they’re all still here, going brown in the fruit bowl. There are only so many I can freeze for banana-bread, so today we’re making banana and choc-chip muffins.


  • 3 bananas
  • 125ml olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 250g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 125g chocolate chips

Set the oven to 180C.

Beat the wet ingredients (including the bananas) together.

Add the sugar and whisk some more.

Next, sieve in the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt.

Then add the chocolate chips and fold all the ingredients together.

Distribute into paper cases and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
