Multifunctional muffins!-Wholemeal Mocha Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins!

with 3 comments

I am a child from the generation of multifunctions… where phones can’t just be phones anymore but have to be able to take photos, film videos, host games and access the internet… Where cameras can connect directly to the printer or to the internet or anywhere…. and where muffins can’t just be one single flavour anymore…

I love my generation! Whee~!

I think that if you’ve read other posts in my blog, you’d have realized that i’m quite health conscious. (I need to fit into my jeans! Help!) But i also have a crippling weakness for sweet stuff and yummy food… It’s the balance that makes things fun!

Presenting the perfect yummy breakfast! Tastes unhealthy, but is actually pretty low fat and good for you! Awesome stuff.

Wholemeal Mocha Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins!

adapted from allrecipes.com (i made a few changes…)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup wholemeal flour
  • 3/4 cup raw sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup extra light olive oil
  • 1/2 cup low fat milk with expresso dissolved into it (how much you put is really up to you! If you need a big kick at breakfast or a little kick)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well!
  2. In another bowl, combine the egg, oil, milk and vanilla.
  3. Dry ingredients into wet until just moistened. Don’t overmix or your muffins will be dry.
  4. Fold in bananas and chocolate chips.
  5. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
  7. Enjoy for breakfast!

(i gave in to the temptation and started eating even before i finished taking my photographs… oop)
