Banana, pecan and chocolate chip muffins

Banana, pecan and chocolate chip muffins

This is a fusion dish – a fusion of our soon-to-be-vacated suburban house produce and our soon-to-be-inhabited farm produce. Bananas from the back yard and pecans from the orchard combine to create quite the taste sensation. Obviously the chocolate chips go well with both (and anything). It was an experiment born of an old muffin recipe and it is now my banana, pecan and chocolate chip muffin recipe:

IMG_2891IMG_2894IMG_28961) Mix together:

  • 1 egg,
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 squashed banana
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cups chocolate chips
  • handful of chopped pecan nuts (plus a few larger chunks for the top)

2) Spoon into muffin pan and top each muffin with a nut or a chocolate chip.

3) Bake at 200 C (400 F) for 15 – 20 minutes.

4) Let stand in pan for 10 minutes and place on cooling rack until cool.

5) Store in an airtight container.

Do I even need to bother typing that these things taste wonderful?

    Wow! Great minds again! These are my very favorite kind of muffins, we’ve been making them a lot lately. Your recipe is a little different, though, I’ll have to try it sometime. I’ve also learned that adding 1/2 cup of plain yogurt is great for keeping them moist.

    Wow. How Many ways can you use pecans? Could be a new tab for your blog as I’m sure we’ll be finding out.

    I substitute apple sauce any time a recipe calls for oil.

    By the way, do you deliver?
