This easy chocolate muffins recipe contains just four ingredients and takes minutes to make. From chocolate muffin craving, to whole-muffin-in-mouth situ, is little over 20 minutes!

A lot of shop-bought muffins are often loaded with trans fats and refined sugar but these easy chocolate muffins have none of those nasties, instead contain just four natural ingredients: bananas, eggs, cocoa powder and dark chocolate. Not only do we always have all these ingredients at home but none of them will contribute to a sugar crash after devouring these muffins.

Make a batch or two – they keep for a day or two in an airtight container – and they freeze well too; just defrost when you want to eat one. Mmmmmm, warm easy chocolate muffins! Enjoy.

Makes 6
Preparation time: 5 minutes + cooling
Cooking time: 20 minutes

3 large very ripe bananas (about 450g peeled weight)
4 eggs, lightly beaten
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
20g dark chocolate, to decorate

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4. Line 6 holes of a muffin tin with paper cases.

2. Put the bananas, eggs and cocoa powder in a food processor or blender and blitz until completely smooth. Divide the mixture between the paper cases and bake for 15-20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre of a muffin comes out clean.

3. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Put the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds or until melted. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the muffins, then allow to set before serving.

You know we’re big fans of ripe bananas, this Easy Banana Bread recipe is one of our go-tos; and if it’s chocolates you’re in the mood for these Chocolate Truffles will hit the spot.
