Caramelised Banana Muffin Bites

As promised here's the recipe for the caramelised banana muffin bites. This recipe makes absolutely loads of tiny muffins if you're making them in petit four cases, but if you want to make normal sized ones then it makes 12 (I only made tiny ones because I thought it would be a bit rubbish if I took a few massive ones to the vegan pot luck). They are very chocolatey with soft and sweet banana bits and plamil alternative to milk chocolate chips! The best thing about these muffins is that they have no animal products in at all making them suitable for vegans :)!

(the yellow ones were banana and the pink ones were raspberry)

320g Plain flour
100g Cocoa powder
1tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt
225g Sugar
460 ml Soy Milk
120 ml Oil
1tsp Vanilla extract
180g Dairy free chocolate chopped into chunks (I used plamil alternative to milk)

30g sugar
1 medium banana
1 tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla extract

(caramelising bananas)

First you need to caramelise your banana, so chop it up in to tiny pieces (you can use larger chunks if you're making normal sized ones) and pop in to a pan with the sugar, water and vanilla extract. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved and then turn up the heat to caramelise. Once browning (not too much you don't want burnt caramel) remove from the heat and put to one side.

Then mix all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl and make a well in the middle. Add the wet ingredients and mix with an electric mixer until well blended. Then add the banana and chocolate chips and mix in with a wooden spoon. Spoon the mixture into muffin cases and bake for 10-15 minutes in a preheated oven until well risen, spongy and a little bit cracked on top.


I love anything mini. Great way of using bananas.
