Give your everyday banana muffins a makeover with this naughty-but-nice recipe. After all, who can resist the addition of a little chocolate to an otherwise healthy muffin recipe?

15 min
25 min


  1. 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
  3. 2 very ripe large bananas, mashed (270g)
  4. 1 tsp Queen Vanilla Bean Paste
  5. 1 cup (250ml) milk
  6. 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  7. ¼ cup (60ml) extra virgin olive oil
  8. 125g punnet fresh blueberries or frozen, thawed & drained
  9. 1/3 cup (60g) dark choc bits


  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 170°C (fan forced). Line a 12 hole, 1/3 cup-capacity muffin pan with paper cases. Combine flour and equal in a large bowl. Make a well in centre and add banana, vanilla, milk, egg and oil. Mix until just combined, then stir in ½ of the blueberries and ½ of the choc bits.

  2. Step 2

    Spoon mixture evenly among paper cases. (About 1/3 cup in each.) Scatter tops with remaining blueberries and choc bits. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until light golden and just firm to touch. Stand in pan for five minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
