One Pot Choco Banana Muffins

Spread the Joy of Cooking...!

Easter holidays are on and what can be better than some baking. And my little one is fond of baking so I thought of including her in preparing today's recipe. This recipe is so easy that even you can include your kids in baking and spend some quality time with them. Today's recipe is Choco- Banana muffins. And this recipe is my personal favorite as it requires only one mixing bowl to do the complete task. That means no messy utensils and too many spatulas.

It's so moist and decadent that if you make it once you will make it again and again. These super easy bakery style muffins are a sweet treat who loves eating bananas.  Its perfect for your your little one who loves eating cupcakes and muffins. It has banana in it, thus making it much more healthier. It can be served in your children breakfast or pack in their lunch boxes. My daughter loves to eat muffins and so I decided to include some healthy ingredients into it.

It is so much easy way to include some healthy food in your kids diet this way. There are many ways and variety of making these muffins. Many people like to use butter in this recipe as it gives very rich taste. But I like to use vegetable oil instead of butter. Oil keeps the muffins moist for a long time.

This recipe is the easiest yet tasty recipe I came across. This is a one pot recipe, that means I have mixed every thing in this one bowl, transferred them to the muffin tray and baked it. No mixing of the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. And you will get your muffins. No hand-machines or stand machine is needed for this recipe. Only hand whisk will do your job.

So here is my recipe just grab it.

* If you want to add some chocolate chips go ahead. It tastes even better.

* If you do not have muffin tray you can bake it as a simple banana cake also. However, the timing for baking will increase. In that case you have to bake around 35- 40 minutes.

* Every oven is different so bake according. My oven took 15 minutes to bake completely.

Serving Tip:- As in breakfast or in evening snacks with a cup of hot chocolate.
