Banana & Choc Chip Muffins February 24, 2011

Ingredients:
2 bananas (past their prime)
1/2 cup raw sugar
dash of vanilla essence
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk (or coconut milk)
2 cups SR flour
Handful choc chips

Method:
1). Mash the bananas into the bowl, then stir in all the other ingredients.  For these I used half a block of cooking chocolate cut into fine bits, as that’s what I had on hand.  Spoon into muffin tins (or make in a loaf pan), and bake at 180ºC for about 15 mins, or until a skewer comes out clean.

yes, no butter in this recipe, the banana replaces it!  You could use coconut/soy/almond milk in place of regular milk for a dairy-free alternative

Cut about 4 bananas into chunks and blend in a food processor until smooth. Put in a freezer-proof container and freeze until just frozen. Remove from the container and blend again to make a creamy frozen icecream-like consistency. You can repeat for another freeze-blend step if you like.

Divide the frozen/blended mixture in half, and add about a handful of frozen blueberries to one batch and a handful of frozen raspberries to the other

Blend each one separately to incorporate the berries, then spoon into the container again.  You can swirl the 2 flavours together.  Freeze again, or serve.

(From Sarah from http://www.joyousbirth.info) I hate using baking powder, so maybe use SR flour instead and leave out the baking soda & powder?

Cut bananas into chunks and blend in a food processor until smooth. Put in a freezer-proof container and freeze until just frozen. Remove from the container and blend again to make a creamy frozen icecream-like consistency. Serve straight away, or freeze to serve later.

You could add 1tb honey and 1/4 tsp cinnamon to 4 bananas worth for extra flavour

Banana On A Stick
Peel bananas and coat with a little orange juice. Stick a skewer into the banana as a stick and freeze for 20 mins. You can roll the bananas in crushed rice bubbles, nuts, sprinkles or coconut before freezing.
