This recipe was given to me by our Grandma who is now 84 years young. It’s an absolute favourite in our family. I love making these to have on hand over the weekend. They are great to take on picnics and handy to pop in school lunches. There are not many times when we have any sweet treats leftover in our house, but if you do, these muffins freeze particularly well. Over the years if the children have needed to take a plate to school for a special celebration, I make this recipe and substitute ¼ cup of the flour for cocoa. This way they instantly become a prized cupcake. The best thing of all is I don’t ever remember one child not liking them!

¾ cup sugar
2 ripe bananas
100g butter
1 egg
1½ cups flour
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup choc chips

Mash bananas. Add sugar and beat. Melt butter and cool. Lightly beat egg and milk. Add butter, milk and egg to banana mixture. Sift in dry ingredients and mix lightly with fork. Add chocolate chips.
Spoon mixture into muffin trays and bake at 190 ̊C for 15-20 minutes. Makes 12 large muffins.
