I wasn't feeling particularly adventurous so I just decided to stick with a recipe from "The Muffin Book" (Muffins-Fast and Fantastic by Susan Reimer, think I've talked about it before?) I say this in "quotations" because it is the only muffin book I own and the only one I have ever used; it's really good so I don't see any point in buying another! Anyway, in the end I went with Banana and Oat muffins, adding the optional chocolate chips. I'm really glad I did just stick simple because they are heavenly; I swear I was nearly drooling as the baked, the smell was gorgeous! They aren't dainty but who cares, it's the taste that counts!
Lets hope the weather cheers up soon, but until then cheer yourself up with these tasty muffins. xxx

- 225g Plain Flour
- 1 Teaspoon Baking powder
- 1 Teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda
- 3 Well ripened bananas
- 110g Caster Sugar
- 1 Egg (beaten)
- 75ml Milk
- 90ml Vegetable Oil/80g Butter (melted)
- 60g Rolled Oats
- 100g Chocolate chips (flavour up to you)
Start by sieving the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl and stirring in the chocolate chips. Then in a separate bowl mash the bananas and stir in the sugar, milk, oil, egg, and oats, mix well. Finally gently fold into the dry ingredients (DO NOT OVER MIX) you are done when the flour is no longer visible, there will still be some lumps but that is ok. Spoon into muffin cases and bake for around 20 mins.
