Banana, Chocolate, Walnut and Marzipan Muffins

Somehow we end up with quite a lot of brown bananas in this house, to some, a waste, to me, time to make Banana Bread again! But this week I felt like doing something a little different, so with the help of my usual, what is in the baking cupboard I decided on Banana, Chocolate, Walnut and Marzipan Muffins. And here is how I did it:


  • 285g of Flour
  • 1 tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1/2 tsp of Salt
  • 110 g of Butter
  • 225g of Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 4 Bananas – Mashed
  • 85ml of Plain Yoghurt
  • 100g of Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 100g of Crushed Walnuts
  • 100g of Marzipan Chunks

  1. Preheat oven to 180C (Fan)
  2. Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl and set aside
  3. In a separate bowl cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture is smooth
  4. Add the eggs, mashed banana and yoghurt to the mixture and stir thoroughly
  5. Then fold in the flour mixture gradually until it is all well combined
  6. Then add the chocolate, walnuts and marzipan and stir to spread through the mix
  7. Grease your tin, I used my cupcake tin without cupcake cases to make individual muffins
  8. Then evenly pour in the mixture
  9. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until risen and brown
  10. Remove from the oven and allow to cool
  11. Then enjoy!

Note: This recipe made 20 muffins

Quite honestly there is not much to say, this recipe is pretty foolproof and results in yumminess every time and these Banana, Chocolate, Walnut and Marzipan Muffins were no exception! I am already looking forward to my next lot of brown bananas!
