Light as a cloud, darkly elegant and lined in pretty party skirts – banana chocolate chip muffins are a great addition to the Christmas table- especially for those who don’t wish to indulge in heavy, fruit laden cakes. The bananas add to the muffin’s moistness, and helps retain the texture for many hours. Despite them being made with chocolate, using wholesome ingredients such as whole wheat flour and brown sugar enhances the nutrition factor. Top them with a sprinkling of nuts, raisins and dry fruit if chocolate chips don’t catch your fancy. Great for lazy weekend breakfasts or busy weekday tea, they are best when freshly prepared.
