  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 12-hole (½-cup capacity) muffin pan or line with paper cases.
  2. Whisk flours, baking powder, bicarb soda, cinnamon and sugar in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk bananas, egg, oil and buttermilk together in a separate jug. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Add banana mixture. Using a large metal spoon, stir until just combined (do not over mix).
  4. Half fill muffin holes with half of the mixture. Add a chocolate square or mini egg to each. Spoon over remaining mixture. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden and firm to touch. Cool in tins for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly and serve warm.

Tips

  • To make your own buttermilk, combine 1 cup of regular milk (or soy milk) with 1 tbs of lemon juice or vinegar and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
  • Why not get creative with this muffin recipe and make it your own? Instead of using chocolate, you can experiment with other fillings, like fresh raspberries or macadamia nuts.
