Resolution Recipe – Banana, Choc Chip and Weet-bix Muffins


Ok guys, here is a new resolutions recipe that is not only reasonably healthy, but pretty tasty too. I was looking for something to cook that I already had most ingredients for, the only thing I had to pick up were the choc chips. The weet-bix adds a weet-bixy flavour, while adding fibre and making them really filling. And they’re really easy!
This is not only good for little kiddies, but the bigger ones too, and perfect for lunchboxes. If you wanted to make it even healthier you could swap the choc chips for sultanas.

Banana, Choc chip & Weet-bix Muffins


Makes 12


3 ripe bananas
4 Weet-Bix
185ml (3/4 cup) milk
2 eggs
80g (4 tbs) margarine
225g (1 1/2 cups) self-raising flour, sifted
2 tbs brown sugar
1 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 180°C.
Grease a 12-hole muffin pan. Mash bananas in a bowl, then crumble in Weet-Bix and stir in the milk.Set aside for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, beat together the eggs and margarine, then add to the banana mixture. Combine flour and sugar in a large bowl and add wet ingredients and choc chips.
Stir until just combined, then spoon into muffin pan and bake for 25 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

When I was finished cooking dinner and busy getting the bath ready for the boys, the house was suspiciously quiet. I found both the boys hiding in the cupboard stuffing their faces with one each! So they must be good.
