Banana muffins with chocolate and walnuts

This is another recipe for banana muffins which appears on my blog. This time the muffins are filled with chocolate and nuts. They are very tasty, soft and moisture. The recipe comes form 'New Italian Cuisine. Muffins.'

Ingredients for 12 muffins:
  • 150g wholegrain flour
  • 150g plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • pinch of slat
  • 125g butter
  • 200g sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 big ripe bananas
  • 60 ml milk
  • 180g dark chocolate
  • 100g walnuts (I used 50g walnuts and 50 g pecans)
Chop the nuts into smaller chunks and set aside.

Grate the chocolate into fine shavings. Set aside.

Mash the bananas with fork and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 180C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

Sift the flours, baking powder, salt, soda into a big bowl, whisk them together and set aside.

In a separate bowl put soft butter and sugar. With an electric mixer beat them together until smooth. Add one egg at the time, wait until each egg is well incorporated. Reduce mixer speed, add bananas, milk and flour mixture. When all ingredients are well combined gently fold in the chocolate and nuts. 

Spoon the batter into paper cases, 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes until well risen and spongy in touch. 

Cool them down on the wire rack and enjoy :)
