BANANA-CHOCOLATE MUFFINS........

HAVE I SAID THIS BEFORE??????
OFFCOURSE!!!!!!! I have,
I love baking and get immense satisfaction in baking something ,especially something new.

I have said this before too, I love baking but do not like the ingredients which are required for a good bake, especially the butter and plain flour, I always feel that you eat something which won’t be of much benefit to you but will just fill you up with some unwanted calories.
I know that for a good soft cake or a muffin, plain flour is very essential, but I wanted to make my banana chocolate muffins without the plain flour, and as I was not answerable to anyone but to myself, and because it would be eaten only by us at home I knew I could take a risk and make it I had tried a wheat flour cake before and it was a success.
I decided to go ahead and try these new muffins which I have made completely with my own measurements and ideas.
Let me tell you these muffins are wonderful and healthy , you find them a little chewy when they get cold , as wheat flour is not like plain flour and the texture and components are different from one and other.
INGREDIENTS
1 cup wheat flour
2 eggs
¾ cup sugar
½ cup vegetable oil.
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 pinch salt
1 very ripe banana you can put 2 if they are tiny.
1 tsp vanilla essence
Broken cashew nuts for decoration (optional)
I put some pieces of milk chocolate on top too.
¼ cup milk if you find it too dry


METHOD
Simple simple method,
Mix together the wet ingredients in a blender or mixer in the following
Order
Oil---sugar ---- mix
Eggs –banana --mix
Sift together wheat flour, baking powder, baking salt, cocoa powder Add it to the above mixture – mix (all mixing to be done in the blender)
Add salt and milk if the mixture is too dry.
Pour the mixture in greased muffin cups, decorate.
Bake
Very important!!!!!!!!!!!!
Eat them as soon as they come out of the oven.
YUMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
