I love making banana muffins!
I feel it is a great way to use up your overripe bananas but also to add fruits to your bakes.
My version has the addition of a delicious combo of Rowse honey and cocoa which gives it a chocolatey twist.
It can be enjoyed around the breakfast table, during coffee breaks or as gift to friends and family. For a richer flavour, feel free to substitute your caster sugar with some brown sugar.
If giving them away, I find baking then in greaseproof muffin cases a great option and a way to add a personal touch.
