Banana chocolate chip muffins


Mrs Eio froze 3 bananas couple of days ago. It’s time to make them into something delicious ~ banana chocolate chip muffins. 

Ingredients

Mixture A- 

  • 2 cups of top flour
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/3 tsp of salt 
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips 
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 2 tbsp chocolate powder. 

Mixture B- 

  • 2 eggs 
  • 3 Mashed bananas 
  • 1/3 cup of canola oil
  • 1/2 cup of soy milk


Instructions

  1. Thawed the frozen bananas briefly. Removed the skin & mashed them. (Add to mixture B). 
  2. Preheat the oven 170 degree c. 
  3. Add mixture B to mixture A. Mixed well. 
  4. Pour the mixtures into 12 muffin cups. (Each cup is 75 percent full. Leave some room for the mixture to rise. ) 
  5. Baked for 23 mins. 

Top flour resulted in muffins with a finer texture. Since there’s more eggs & bananas this time round (wetter mixture), Mrs Eio reduced the amount of oil & sugar, and increase the baking time slightly. The muffins are moist. 

Em’s little hands can’t resist sweet treats. It’s wonderful to have a loyal supporter … 😜 enjoy.

Lemon chocolate chip muffins

To finish up the packet of HK flour on Mrs Eio’s shelf, she adjusted her usual muffin recipe for her lemon chocolate chip muffins. The kids love the taste & texture. So here’s the recipe for future “duplications”. Lol. 😂 

Ingredients (to yield 12 big muffins): 

1) Mixture A

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups Hong Kong flour 
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

2) Mixture B

  • 1/2 cup nutrisoy milk (reduced sugar) 
  • 1/3 cup canola oil 
  • 3 eggs (beaten)
  •  2 teaspoons of lemon juice with grated lemon skin. 

3) almond nuts (optional for topping)

Preheat oven at 170 degree C. 🆗

Add mixture B to mixture A. Mix together. Add them evenly into the muffin cups. Topped with almond nuts. 

Bake the muffin for 20 mins. ⏳

After 20 min, insert a satay stick into one of the muffins. If the muffins are ready, the stick will come out clean. ✅


Treats for Eio kids for the next few days. 👍🏻😋

Unlike rice, quinoa can be frozen without losing its taste & texture. Mrs Eio’s back-up plans for any 2 meals for these 2 weeks. Save time & energy. 😅

Mrs Eio prefers the taste & texture of tricolor quinoa. Quinoa is high in protein & fiber. Try it! You can get quinoa in our supermarkets. Mrs Eio got her organic tricolour quinoa from The Bento People. http://www.thebentopeople.com
