A surprise tea-time birthday party… part 2: Choco-banana muffins with peanut butter

ingredients for 12 to 15  muffins:

2 big eggs or 3 small ones

120g sugar (I used brown sugar)

2 bananas, mashed (about 180g)

200 g crunchy peanut butter

75g chocolate cut in small chunks

100g yogurt

180 g flour

100 g instant oat flakes

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 pinch of salt

icing:

2 tablespoons peanut butter

50g dark chocolate

15 g confectioner sugar

Method:

Preheat the oven at 180 °C.

Whisk the eggs with sugar until the mixture becomes whitish and fluffy.

Add the puréed bananas, yogurt, chocolate bits and the pinch of salt. Mix well until the batter is smooth.

Combine together: flour, baking powder, baking soda and oat. Add it to the mixture and mix well.

Pour the batter into the muffin cups and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

Once they have cooled down, prepare the icing: melt the chocolate “au bain- marie” . Remove from heat and mix thoroughly with the confectioner sugar. Add the peanut butter and stir briefly, so that it does NOT blend well together, because it is nicer to still see the peanut butter bits in the icing!

Spread on top of the muffins and let it cool down before eating (if you can…)

This recipe, with my personal additions and changes is inspired by a muffins recipe found here.
