Well, maybe that's a slight exaggeration.
I woke up today a little less tired than usual, which somehow, these days equals some kind of rapture inside - because a day not spent scraping myself up off the floor due to heavy, heavy tiredness is a day which should be celebrated.
Ah, the joys of kids!
I cleaned, I did the week's shopping (with toddler in tow!), I walked the dog, I got on top of my washing pile and then when I came across these old bananas, instead of carelessly ditching them in the bin because I was to tired to envisage actually being able to function well enough to do anything with them, I actually thought 'hey, let's do some baking!'
Check me out, I'm on a roll!
|Manky auld bananas! Yum!|
I'll be the first to admit, it doesn't look promising, does it?
|'Bananas! In pyjamas!'|
|They looked better once peeled!|
So! Here's my recipe for Sneaky Banana Muffins (makes approx. 12) They are sneaky because they look like awesome chocolate muffins, but the manky old bananas are hiding!! Ha ha!
You will need two bowls.
2 manky auld Bananas (they mash better when they are brown and old)
50g Melted Butter
1 Egg (beaten)
A slug of Natural Yoghurt
150g Caster Sugar
50g Chocolate Chips
135g Plain Flour
1tsp Baking Powder
20g Cocoa powder
Once the bowls are combined:
A slug of Milk (preferably full-fat)
Combine the ingredients together in their separate bowls. Once thoroughly mixed, pour the wet bowl into the dry stuff. Mix thoroughly. Adda slug of milk to loosen the mixture to a soft, shiny consistency.
|Ethan getting in with the spoon!|
|Stop for a well-deserved yoghurt break|
|Warning - little helpers cannot resist temptation!|
|Serve with a delicious glass of cold milk - complete with curly straw, of course!|
I shall duplicate this recipe soon when he is not around and let you all know!
