Banana muffins

I love muffins!
Muffins are the perfect treat for yourself and for your guests, because they're super easy to make, they taste good (unless you screw up badly) and they look cute! Muffins can also be made in so many different ways: with chocolate, yoghurt, jam, berries, fruits, nuts, carrots or even salty versions with cheese and ham!
Don't buy factory made muffins from the shop, they are greasy and often taste awful. Instead bake them yourself, they will be delicious :)

These are banana muffins or, as my bf called them, monkey muffins! :D They're one of my favorite muffins.

Before this, I made muffins only once in my life and it was a disaster (I accidentally put double amount of butter so they turned out quite greasy :P). But this time it was a YUMMY SURPRISE, these muffins were the most moist and tasty muffins I've ever eaten. You should really try these out.

I made a couple of muffins prettier with sugar decorations :)

HINT: Try to use nicely ripe bananas because those are softer and have stronger flavor.

Ingredients (12 muffins):
  • 4 ripe bananas (save few slices for decoration)
  • 3,5 dl flour
  • 1,20 dl sugar
  • 80 gr melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Mash the bananas with a fork or in a mixer. Melt the butter at low heat and let it cool down. Beat the egg slightly with a fork.
Put the mashed bananas in a bowl with the egg, sugar and melted butter and mix well. In another bowl mix the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix wet and dry ingredients together and pour into muffins cups (fill them about 2/3).
If you want add on top the banana slices.
Bake in the oven at 180ºC (356ºF) for about 20 min.  Check by inserting a toothpick in the middle, if it comes out clean, then the muffins are ready. Let the muffins cool down before decorating and serving.
