Banana & Chocolate Muffins with Choco Chips & Crunchy Rice Krispies!!!

In keeping with the speed of my never ending quest for variations of Eggless Muffins, today I decided to get a little more adventurous on the contents. I opened my pantry and wondered what to play around with??? Bananas..yes, of course, they are my egg substitues….Chocolates, oh yes, welcome any time….Choco chips. well…why not? I have had them lying in my pantry for months…and I was still missing something. My eyes fell on the box of Rice Krispies and I grabbed a handful. Krispies are always a pleasure to work with because I love the crunchiness that it attributes to whatever I add it to. It`s quite a surprising addition to many quick fixes with more surprising results.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup All Purpose Flour.

3 Tbsp of Cocoa Powder.

Baking Soda – 1 Tsp.

Soft Brown Sugar – 3/4 cups not leveled.

1 Banana pureed in the mixer with 2 tsp of water/milk.

1/2 cup melted margarine.

3/4 cup Hot Water.

Handful of Rice Krispies.

Couple of Chocolate Chips.

1 Tsp Banana Essence / Vanilla Essence.

PREPARATION:

  • Measure out the required dry ingredients – the all purpose flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda and mix them in a bowl.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Take a  muffin pan and grease it with baking spray or oil. Set aside.
  • Start with the wet ingredients  – In a mixing bowl, add melted margarine, banana puree, hot water, sugar, and banana/vanilla essence.
  • Mix slowly to incorporate these  ingredients together.
  • Add the dry ingredients little by little taking care not to whisk briskly as this might rob the batter of  air that is needed to give it sufficient sponginess.
  • Lastly add the chocolate chips and the rice krispies to the batter giving it a whisk.
  • Using a small ladle, dole out equal quantities on to the muffin pans. We do this so we get equal sized muffins.
  • Bake in the oven for around 15-17 minutes..Different ovens take different times based on the efficiency, voltage etc so keep a watch with the oven light on.
  • When you get browning on the top, and the time has crossed 15minutes, keep a close watch and turn off the oven when neeeded.
  • Enjoy delicious crunchy banana chocolate chip muffins.
