Banana muffin recipe step by step:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C°. Convert!
  2. Use paper muffin cups or thoroughly grease and flour dust a muffin tray.
  3. Melt the 50g of unsalted butter on the stove in a small pot.
  4. Mash the two ripe bananas in a separate bowl.
  5. Into a bowl measure the half cup of chocolate drops, the one and a half cups of white spelt flour and the third of a cup brown sugar. Mix!
  6. Break an egg into the bowl and fold under with a spatula.
  7. Stir a quarter cup of milk and the 50g of melted unsalted butter in with the spoon.
  8. Stir under the one and a half teaspoons of baking powder, the teaspoon of ground cinnamon and the pinch of salt.
  9. Lastly fold under, with a spatula, the mashed bananas so that everything combines well.
  10. Now fill each muffin cup with about one and a half heaped tablespoons of batter. When it is split up evenly place the muffin tray into the oven then bake the banana muffins for 30 minutes at 180C°.

When done brush the muffins with melted baking chocolate. Alternatively place a piece of chocolate onto every muffin. Leave for 3-5 minutes then take a spoon and spread the chocolate evenly (this works only when the muffins just came out of the oven).
